Robert Horigan Smith, "Analyzing Friction in the Design of Rubber Products and Their Paired Surfaces"
English | 2008 | ISBN: 0849381363 | PDF | 424 pages | 5,4 MB
Taking a mechanistic approach that emphasizes the physical behavior of rubber as it slides, Analyzing Friction in the Design of Rubber Products and Their Paired Surfaces integrates the engineering
and scientific evidence demonstrating that the laws of metallic friction do not apply to rubber. The book also presents a newly developed, scientifically based unified theory of rubber friction that
incorporates a fourth basic rubber friction force: surface deformation hysteresis.
With applications that phenomenologically treat both static and dynamic rubber friction, the book offers practical guidance for implementing the unified theory in the analysis and design processes. The
use of this theory enables comprehensive calculations of rubber friction, thereby offering opportunities to enhance public safety. While the theory applies to all elastomeric products where friction is an
issue, the author primarily focuses on:
вЂў Analyzing friction in the design of rubber tires and their contacted pavements
вЂў The geometric design of roadways
вЂў Motor vehicle accident reconstruction
вЂў Analyzing slip resistance in the design of footwear and their contacted walking surfaces
Supported by extensive analytical evidence, this book details what rubber friction is and why it behaves the way it does.
