Theme Contact, friction, interfaces

The aim is to better understand contact interactions (that is, occurring on the boundary) between several solids. These interactions result in a rich phenomenology: friction, adhesion, squeal, jamming. The object of the analysis is to answer issues of fundamental nature, but also to provide rapid answers to more applied issues raised by big industrial companies. The approaches are theoretical, numerical and experimental.
