As expected, in a first stage of the motion, the rotor performs a continuous rotation motion, after which it performs an oscillatory motion with linearly decreasing amplitude, characteristic to dry friction. The normal reaction also has a continuous rotation at the beginning of the motion and at a certain instant, it turns into oscillation motion.
The alternative method to solve the problem is to deal with the nonlinear characteristic of the dry friction force.
Although the friction heat could damage the TBFs, the surface morphology of SiCp/A356 composites has big difference whether there are TBFs before dry friction under high temperature or not, which can be displayed by comparing the surface morphology in Figures 8 and 12.

That is why the facility switched from traditional dry friction brakes to MagnaShear Oil Shear Brakes from Force Control Industries.
Among the topics are the nature of rough surfaces, dry friction and wear, journal bearings, transient elastohydrodynamic lubrication, and bio-tribology.
Mechanical systems involving dry friction and rigid unilateral contact are usually described as differential inclusions (DIs).
Also, the dry friction between the piston and cylinder was neglected.
