Bowden was the first to indicate there are two types of friction, namely stick-slip friction and smooth sliding friction (6) and he studied the nature of solid surfaces and techniques for determining their topography and structure (7), (8).
One of her projects focuses on modeling atomic stick-slip friction between an atomic force microscope and a substrate.
In last November's issue, page 87, Charlie Carlson described his use of Armorall to reduce the stick-slip friction of the Formica-on-Teflon bearings of his 20-inch Dobsonian.
Everything from a squeaking door to an earthquake results from a phenomenon known as stick-slip friction. For decades, physicists have assumed that stick-slip friction arises from the fact that friction falls with increasing sliding velocity.
Furthermore, there was an evident uneven temperature phenomenon, which appeared on the pit textured surface that might be caused by the former mentioned "stick-slip friction," whether the pin rotated in the clockwise or anticlockwise direction.
