What happens when you try to slide across a sticky surface? Lots of micro-slips! This week in the lab we measured the stick-slip profiles between glass and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS, or silicone).
They will be working on the tribology of natural surfaces. Stop by to learn more about this work!
Prof. Dunn will present recent work entitled “Bio-incompatibility? Stability of Hydrogel Layer Lubrication” at the 16th International Conference on Deformation, Yield, and Fracture of Polymers, March 29th to April 2nd 2015.
Erik Reale, Jiho Kim, and Enrique Chavez Villalobos all contributed to this work.
Check out the people/openings page for new openings in Spring 2015 and beyond.
Introduction to Tribology will once again be offered in the Spring. For details please visit the Teaching page, where you will find a tentative syllabus.
