Abstract : The collection reports the most recent research of Soviet and foreign scientists in the field of friction. A historical review of the development of the science of friction is given. The mechanism by which the rubbing surfaces interact is described. Problems of adhesive-bond strength, molecular bonds, local contacts between elastic bodies, calculation of contact interaction, wear, and friction forces are considered, as are problems of lubrication.
