The article proposes a short history of the research on friction. For every period, the most important themes and results are outlined: the early laws and theories on friction from Leonardo to Amontons and Coulomb; the theory of lubrication and the models of rolling friction, from 1840 to 1930; the theories of wear, the synthesis of Bowden and Tabor and the birth of tribology; the recent developments, with the new scientific instruments and the study of friction at the atomic scale, the nanotribology. Some didactic reflections introduce and conclude the article.

Abstract

The article proposes a short history of the research on friction. For every period, the most important themes and results are outlined: the early laws and theories on friction from Leonardo to Amontons and Coulomb; the theory of lubrication and the models of rolling friction, from 1840 to 1930; the theories of wear, the synthesis of Bowden and Tabor and the birth of tribology; the recent developments, with the new scientific instruments and the study of friction at the atomic scale, the nanotribology. Some didactic reflections introduce and conclude the article.
