This ebook describes for the 1st time a simulation procedure for the short calculation of touch homes and friction among tough surfaces in a whole shape. unlike current simulation tools, the tactic of dimensionality aid (MDR) is predicated at the designated mapping of varied kinds of three-d touch difficulties onto contacts of one-dimensional foundations. in the confines of MDR, not just are 3 dimensional structures diminished to one-dimensional, but in addition the ensuing levels of freedom are self sustaining from one other. consequently, MDR leads to a tremendous aid of the advance time for the numerical implementation of touch difficulties in addition to the direct computation time and will finally think the same position in tribology as FEM has in constitution mechanics or CFD equipment, in hydrodynamics. additionally, it considerably simplifies analytical calculation and provides a kind of “pocket booklet variation” of the whole lot touch mechanics. Measurements of the rheology of our bodies in touch in addition to their floor topography and adhesive houses are the inputs of the calculations. particularly, it's attainable to catch the full dynamics of a method – starting with the macroscopic, dynamic touch calculation right down to the impact of roughness – in one numerical simulation version. as a result, MDR enables the unification of the equipment of fixing touch difficulties on assorted scales. The targets of this booklet are at the one hand, to end up the applicability and reliability of the strategy and nevertheless, to give an explanation for its very simple software to these interested.
