    • Tactile perception by friction induced vibrations 

      Fagiani, R.; Massi, F.; Chatelet, E.; Berthier, Y.; Akay, A. (2011)
      When a finger moves to scan the surface of an object (haptic sensing), the sliding contact generates vibrations that propagate in the finger skin activating the receptors (mechanoreceptors) located in the skin, allowing ...
    • Theory of atomic scale friction 

      Buldum, Alper (Bilkent University, 1998)
      Friction is an old and important but at the same time very complex physical event. This thesis aims to develop an atomic scale theory of friction. VVe investigate various atomic processes and stick-slip motion by using ...
    • Three-dimensional mortar-based frictional contact treatment in isogeometric analysis with NURBS 

      Temizer, I.; Wriggers, P.; Hughes, T. J. R. (2012)
      A three-dimensional mortar-based frictional contact treatment in isogeometric analysis with NURBS is presented in the finite deformation regime. Within a setting where the NURBS discretization of the contact surface is ...
