friction

surface resistance to relative motion; the rubbing of one surface against another; discord, dissidence, antagonism, clash, contention: The disagreement caused a lot of friction between the friends.
Not to be confused with:
fraction – a number usually expressed as 1/2, 1/4, etc.; a part as distinct from the whole of anything; portion or section: He received only a fraction of what he was owed.

fric•tion

(ˈfrɪk ʃən)

n.
1. surface resistance to relative motion, as of a body sliding or rolling.
2. the rubbing of the surface of one body against that of another.
3. dissension or conflict, as between persons or nations, because of differing views.
[1575–85; < Latin frictiō a massage, derivative of fricāre to rub]

fric·tion

(frĭk′shən)
The resistance to movement that occurs when two objects are in contact. It is friction, for example, that slows down a ball rolling on grass and causes the blade of a saw cutting wood to get hot. There is less friction between smooth surfaces than between rough surfaces. Friction can be reduced by using a lubricant such as oil or silicone.

Model Gen II charts dissipated energy due to deflection for three pavement types in the Federal Highway Administration's Long Term Pavement Performance database: GPS-1 (asphalt concrete on granular base), GPS-3 (jointed plain concrete), and GPS-7 (asphalt concrete over concrete).
Philosophy behind seismic isolation system: Whenever a structure is subjected to earthquake loading, the total input energy of the structure can be expressed as: Kinetic energy (KE)+ Dissipated energy DE+ Strain energy (SE)= Input energy IE Kinetic energy and strain energy are the recoverable energies whereas the viscous energy and hysteretic energy are dissipative energies.
In previous studies, the researchers used a laser wavelength that was not well absorbed by the water of the driving liquid, causing the formation of tiny shock waves that dissipated energy and hampered the formation of the vapour bubble.
Other solutions, such as offering them funds for micro-projects, have to be hammered out to make full use of dissipated energy.
A quite good correlation between the cumulative AE energy thus calculated and the cumulative damage on the concrete measured in terms of cumulative dissipated energy was obtained.
Their topics include predicting the seismic displacement of landslides and gravity walls using a multi-block model, dynamic responses of high-speed railway bridges under earthquakes and their influences on running safety, seismic resistant braced frame structures with shape-memory alloy-based self- centering damping devices, applying numerical tools for modelling granular soil behavior under earthquakes, applying dissipated energy to model cyclic loaded saturated soils, and simplified modal response history analysis for asymmetric-plan structures.
When the mowers descend no power is needed for propulsion, however, the dissipated energy is captured as electrical energy and stored in two 12 V economical gel-sealed batteries.
