Friction in Microforming
Friction is defined, in its simplest form, as the tendency of two contacting surfaces to resist relative motion between them. In microforming processes, the effect of friction differs from its macroscale behavior, and it is magnified due to the small characteristic length scale of phenomena. This chapter tries to elucidate the nature of friction in microforming processes.
