Abstract

A phenomenological model of soft potential configurations is proposed to describe sliding friction in the wearless regime. This model accounts for the static and dynamic behavior. The physical origin of the logarithmic speed or time dependence for the friction coefficient is described. Means to control the friction coefficient by controlling the soft defect density are discussed.
