The objective of this paper is to highlight the influence of the rheology of a third body in dry sliding contact conditions. It has been shown that the local cohesion of the third body can create an asymmetric dissipative field through its thickness. The present study puts forward the consequences from a thermal point of view, overcoming the inherent experimental difficulties at this microscopic scale.
