Solid-To-Solid Adhesion

  • J. J. Bikerman


The term solid-to-solid adhesion means different things to different people. Although there is no hope of satisfying everybody, it will be attempted to tell as much about it as is possible. We will start with an experiment, using as a solid a piece of chalk. When one just pulls at the piece of chalk, it is relatively strong, and cannot be broken in tension. If one applies a moment, it can be broken, but when the two ends are put together, they don't fit at all.
