This paper considers the investigations into adhesion, contact mechanics metal erosion effects, wear and tare as a result of the effects of frictional forces. Mechanical components rely on friction for the transformation and delivery of energy from point A to point B. This requires the knowledge of combined energies as well as their associated dynamic models and ancillary parameters. Adhesion, contact, friction and wear are major problems limiting both the fabrication yield and lifetime of any devices. Since it is the area of real contact, which determines the sliding friction, adhesion interaction may strongly affect the friction force even when no adhesion can be detected in a pull-off experiment. Therefore a good scientific dynamic modelling of friction forces is a prerequisite for the understanding and monitoring of friction adverse effect on mechanical systems for good maintenance purposes.
