...M. Eriten; A. A. Polycarpou; L. A. Bergman The effect of roughness on the frictional energy dissipation in fretting contact of nominally flat rough surfaces is studied. The contact is modeled as the statistical sum of asperity tip junctions. A mathematical analysis with a probability distribution...

.... This resulted in a solution for the probability density function (PDF) of the response, which was of an intermittent nature indeed due to the specific algorithm of its generation. In the present paper (Paper II), rapid broadband parameter variations are considered, which can be described by the theory of Markov...

..., some alternatives of it have been suggested. Fuzzy-sets based approaches gain much popularity. There are many discussions on philosophical implications of each of these approaches. Whereas the probabilistic methodology requires the knowledge of probability densities, the fuzzy-sets based approaches...

... of the probability density function is quite sharp and has a large peak value if it is obtained from the surface contacts under a normal load. The profile of the probability density function defined for the contact surface after elastic recovery is quite close to the profile before experiencing contact deformations...

... transformation of probability measures is proposed for nonlinear oscillators driven by additive white-noise processes. The nonlinear part of the drift vector is appropriately decomposed and replaced, resulting in an exactly solvable linear system. The error in replacing the nonlinear terms is then corrected...
