Influence of surface topography on frictional properties of Cu surfaces under different lubrication conditions: Comparison of dry, base oil, and ZnS nanowire-based lubrication system Academic Article uri icon


  • This work deals with the frictional properties of ductile Cu surfaces of varying morphologies under three different lubrication conditions including dry, base oil only, and nanowirebase oil. It was found that the frictional properties of base oil and nanowire-based lubrication system strongly depended on the surface topography while the friction for the dry surfaces was independent of the surface topography. 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
