Goyal, Suresh; Ruina, Andy; Papadopoulos, Jim (Cornell University, 1990-03)We present two geometric descriptions of the net frictional force and moment between a rigid body and a planar surface on which it slides. The limit surface LS, from classical plasticity theory, is the surface in load ...
Goyal, Suresh; Ruina, Andy; Papadopoulos, Jim (Cornell University, 1990-03)Some problems in the dynamics of sliding of planar rigid bodies are treated by geometric methods based on the limit surface description of friction (Goyal, Ruina, Papadopoulos ). The problems we consider, where the ...
