This section mainly studies Coulomb friction coefficient fc and the maximum static friction /max in friction model.
In this study, a measure of damage was defined as the Coulomb friction coefficient; that is, a nondamaged state is associated with the friction coefficient at the steady-state sliding contact after the running-in period.
This is also true for the discrete control system, which takes into account the Coulomb friction.
Among specific topics are evaluating the mechanical properties of a single trabecular in bovine femur, the experimental analysis of composite steel-concrete slabs, the parallel solution of contact shape optimization problems with Coulomb friction based on domain decomposition, developing green composites using agricultural waste, and the four-dimensional design and analysis of modular footbridges in developing countries.
