From polymer additive degradation to dry and lubricated solids, this book covers a wide range of topics in tribology. The text addresses four practically important and interrelated phenomena: contact interaction of rough surfaces, elastohydrodynamic lubrication, viscosity reduction, and contact fatigue. Phenomena of contact interaction of rough elastic surfaces and of mechanically induced lubricant degradation receive rigorous mathematical treatment and numerical analysis. Based on initial material defect distribution and its kinetics in the process of cyclic loading, the contact fatigue model provides a foundation to develop insights into modeling the effects of contact interactions.
