This e-book describes for the 1st time a simulation procedure for the short calculation of touch homes and friction among tough surfaces in an entire shape. unlike latest simulation tools, the strategy of dimensionality relief (MDR) relies at the distinct mapping of assorted different types of three-d touch difficulties onto contacts of one-dimensional foundations. in the confines of MDR, not just are 3 dimensional platforms diminished to one-dimensional, but in addition the ensuing levels of freedom are self sufficient from one other. accordingly, MDR leads to a tremendous relief of the advance time for the numerical implementation of touch difficulties in addition to the direct computation time and will eventually suppose the same function in tribology as FEM has in constitution mechanics or CFD tools, in hydrodynamics. moreover, it considerably simplifies analytical calculation and offers a kind of “pocket ebook version” of the whole thing touch mechanics. Measurements of the rheology of our bodies in touch in addition to their floor topography and adhesive homes are the inputs of the calculations. specifically, it really is attainable to seize the whole dynamics of a procedure – starting with the macroscopic, dynamic touch calculation right down to the impact of roughness – in one numerical simulation version. for this reason, MDR makes it possible for the unification of the equipment of fixing touch difficulties on assorted scales. The targets of this e-book are at the one hand, to turn out the applicability and reliability of the tactic and nonetheless, to provide an explanation for its very simple program to these interested.
