This monograph summarizes result of learn in a few floor phenomena, saw in mechanical therapy and friction. particularly, the publication is dedicated to pressing difficulties of the technology of friction and put on and gives perception into the mechanism of the phenomena that reason, at the one hand, anomalously low coefficients of friction and put on (the so-called selective move) and at the different, dramatic damages of the outside layers in the course of sliding (hydrogen put on of metals). the character of steel interplay in the course of sliding in selective move and hydrogen put on modes is analyzed intimately. in addition result of reviews fascinated with definite facets of phenomena showing within the technique of influencing contacting surfaces and with detecting the connection among the saw features and behavior of investigated fabrics within the means of mechanical remedy and friction are provided. the primary is to mix different experimental proof, actual recommendations and research tools, which in the beginning sight seem to be unrelated, and utilizing this method of make sure basic principles. bankruptcy One presents the reader with a common knowing of primary floor phenomena which offer the history to their dynamic interplay in mechanical therapy and less than friction. bankruptcy offers with the legislation governing effect of mechanical results at the floor. The 3rd bankruptcy provides the basics of the selective move thought lower than friction. different chapters take care of the probabilities of the Mossbauer electron spectroscopy process, time-honored in physics for fixing tribology difficulties, the impression of exterior electromotive strength resources on touch resistance and friction pairs' put on, and hydrogen put on of metals less than friction.
