On the stability of friction contact

Zenon Mróz
The stability condition (1.2) for frictional contact expressed in terms of potential energy and the dissipation function is applied to analysis of the stability of rigid-sliding and elastic-sliding contacts obeying the Coulomb friction condition and the non-associated sliding rule. Both static and dynamic modes are considered.
Keywords: contact friction; stability; static and dynamic modes
