Friction in Mechanics: Mathematics and Simulation

Researchers: Lars-Erik Andersson, Lars Johansson and Anders Klarbring

In this project, which is conducted in cooperation with the Department of Mathematics at Linköping University, unilateral contact with Coulomb friction is studied. The project is primarily oriented towards the investigation and understanding of frictional instability phenomena. The aim is both to obtain relevant mathematical results and to perform numerical simulations of such phenomena.
