Where the rubber meets the road

Researchers combine simple experiments first employed by Leonardo da Vinci with advanced theory to reveal new atomic-level insights into what happens when rubber slides across asphalt


Friction, the force that slows down objects as they slide across a surface, can save lives when car brakes are slammed. Yet despite its obvious importance, no one knows for sure how friction works at the level of atoms and molecules.For more than 20 years, Bo Persson, a scientist at the Jülich ...
