Title

Molecular dynamics simulation of adhesion and friction for MEMS application

Abstract

"In this study, adhesion and friction are modeled and simulated for metal to metal interaction. The interaction between two aluminum surfaces is simulated since the focus of this study is on the atomic-scale frictional characterization of metallic microcomponents."--Abstract, page iii.
