Adhesion / Friction Review

Adhesion occurs at the points of contact and refers to the welding effect that occurs when two bodies are compressed against each other. This effect is more commonly referred to as cold welding and is attributed to pressure rather than heat, which is associated with welding in the more familiar sense. A shearing force is required to separate cold-welded surfaces.
