Melting of ultrathin lubricant film due to dissipative heating of friction surfaces

Melting of an ultrathin lubricant film during friction between atomically smooth surfaces is studied. Additive noise of shear stress and strain as well as of film temperature is introduced and the phase diagram is constructed. On the diagram, the noise intensity for this temperature and the temperature of friction surfaces determine the regions of sliding, dry, and stick-slip friction. As a result of numerical analysis of the Langevin equation for various regions of the diagram, time series of stresses are constructed, which make it possible to explain the experiment on friction, in which intermittent motion is observed. Lubricant melting due to dissipative heating of friction surface is considered and the experimental time dependences of friction force are interpreted.
