Effect of Stainless Steel Surface Macrogeometry and Microgeometry on the Coefficient of Sliding Friction on Ice
Jānis Lungevičs, Riga Technical University, Latvia
The Doctoral Thesis is a thematically unified collection of articles. The Thesis research developed a new methodology for sliding body surface macrogeometry and microgeometry measurements for the coefficient of friction on ice determination. Information about the contact area of surfaces obtained using the new methodology makes it possible to significantly improve the data analysis of friction experiments.
