Abstract

The meanings of the concepts of “force” and “motion” went through changes along history from the very basic meanings they had in antiquity through the approaches of Socrates, Galileo, Newton, Albert Einstein, and others, all of whom progressively laid the foundations for modern science. We will use these to review the progress of science ending up with layman description of state of the art nowadays tribological concepts and methods.

Presenter Biography

Dr. Rafael Tadmor earned his B.Sc. (1992) and M.Sc. (1994) in Chemical Engineering from the Technion (Israel) and his Ph.D. (2000) from the department of Materials and Interfaces, at the Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel).  He then moved to UC Santa Barbara where he was a post doc with Prof. Jacob Israelachvili at the department of Chemical Engineering, following which he joined (2003) the department of Chemical Engineering (now the Dan F. Smith Department of Chemical Engineering) at Lamar University as an Assistant Professor. Since 2009 he has been an Associate Professor there.  Rafael’s research interests include wetting phenomena, tribology, surface forces, and intermolecular forces.  He has published 4 book chapters, 37 peer reviewed papers, and numerous conference presentations. He won a number of awards and recognitions throughout his career. Most recently his 2009 Physical Review Letters paper (103, 266101) was recommended for reading across disciplines by the PRL editorial, in 2010 he won the Distinguished Faculty Lecturer Award of Lamar University (this was the first, and so far the only, time that an engineering professor receives this award), and in 2012 he won the University Scholar Awards of Lamar University. Dr. Tadmor is the sole inventor of the Centrifugal Adhesion Balance (CAB), a cutting edge tribological characterization technique that is being commercialized these days.
