Abstract

The current hypothesis on the mechanism of dry and boundary friction conceives solid surfaces in contact as forming very minute welds or adhesions on the isolated areas of true contact. When sliding occurs, these welds are broken and new ones are formed. Other phenomena may also take place during sliding, but the present paper deals only with observations of the adhesion factor.
