  1. 1. Surfaces Designed for High and Low Friction

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper

    Author : Ulrika Pettersson; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materials science; tribology; friction; surface texture; surface design; low friction; high friction; boundary lubrication; DLC; embossing; Materialvetenskap; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis comprises tribological studies of extremely well-defined surfaces of different designs. Both low-friction and high-friction surfaces were manufactured and experimentally evaluated.In the low-friction studies, lithography and anisotropic etching of silicon was first used as a texturing technique.

  2. 2. Surface Force and Friction effects of adsorbed layers and surface topography

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Xiaoyan Liu; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Friction; nanotribology; surface forces; diblock copolymer; lipid; QCM-D; AFM; optical reflectometry; neutron reflectivity; X-ray reflectivity; micro-patterned surface; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Interfacial features of polymers are a complex, fascinating topic, and industrially very important. There is clearly a need to understand interactions between polymer layers as they can be used for controlling surface properties, colloidal stability and lubrication. The aim of my Ph. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Friction between Paper Surfaces

    University dissertation from Institutionen för pappers- och massateknologi

    Author : Niklas Garoff; KTH.; [2002]
    Keywords : friction; fibers; boundary lubrication; adhesion; capillary condensation; surface forces; chemcial analysis; x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy; atomic force microscope;

    Abstract : The main objective for the work described in this PhD thesiswas to formulate a friction model to characterize thefrictional behavior of paper. More specifically, the modelshould explain a phenomenon that is typical for paper grades,viz.: that the level of paper-to-paper friction is dependent onthe direction and the number of previous slides.

  4. 4. Discrete element simulation of elasto-plastic shock waves in high-velocity compaction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Muhammad Shoaib; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; High-velocity compaction; Discrete element method; Plastic deformaiton; dynaimic loading; elasto-plastic shock wave; Friction; Adhesion; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik; Järnvägsgruppen - Ljud och vibrationer; Järnvägsgruppen - Ljud och vibrationer;

    Abstract : Elasto-plastic shock waves in high-velocity compaction of spherical metal particles are the focus of this thesis which consists of four papers (A-D). The compaction process is modeled by a discrete element method while using elastic and plastic loading, elastic unloading and adhesion at contacts. READ MORE

  5. 5. Friction and Wear Mechanisms of Ceramic Surfaces With Applications to Micro Motors and Hip Joint Replacements

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johanna Olofsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tribology; Friction; Wear; Ceramic; Tribofilm; Alumina; Silicon nitride; Ultrasonic Motors; Hip Joint Replacement; PVD coating; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science;

    Abstract : Surfaces exposed to wear always transform and typically a layer of new structure and composition is formed. This layer, often called tribofilm, changes the friction and wear properties. READ MORE
