Dear LAMMPS users and developers,
Recently, I was reading a paper titled “Molecular Dynamics Study on Friction Due to Ploughing
and Adhesion in Nanometric Scratching Process”. It simulates a hard asperity sliding against a soft bulk material in nanoscale. And it classifies the friction into ploughing friction, adhesive friction, and the friction caused by the chips. I would like to figure out how to obtain this ploughing friction, but it seems the paper doesn’t provide the details. Can everyone teach me or give me some clues on how to calculate ploughing friction force in LAMMPS? Thank you.
