Transition from Static to Dynamic Friction in an Array of Frictional Disks

30 Aug 2019 Charan Harish Chattoraj Joyjit Ciamarra Massimo Pica Procaccia Itamar

The nature of an instability that controls the transition from static to dynamical friction is studied in the the context of an array of frictional disks that are pressed from above on a substrate. In this case the forces are all explicit and Newtonian dynamics can be employed without any phenomenological assumptions... (read more)
