Quantum Effects in Tribology (Hardcover) (Dmitry N. Lyubimov & Kirill N. Dolgopolov)
About this item
This book explores the quantum foundations of materials friction interaction and the evolutionary formation of tribosystems’ operating parameters. Attention is given to the analysis of the existing diversity of friction, wear & lubrication models, their relationship with each other, and to the quantum nature of the measurement process. Consideration of measurement as a process of defining the output parameters of tribosystem is carried out with the apparatus of second quantization and conceptions associated with non-local quantum effects. Such an approach makes it possible to take another look at the evolution of tribosystems and discover previously unknown regularities of friction.
