This section introduces the main tools currently used in tribological modeling, starting from analytical models and discussing continuous and discrete mechanical and multiphysical methods suitable for simulations characterized by different time- and length-scales (see Fig. 1 for a map of representative tribological models built across the scales), namely finite and boundary element methods ...
Total RNA was isolated from LT and BF samples (approximately 100 mg) using TRIzol Reagent (Invitrogen-Life Technologies, Carlsbad, CA). The RNA quality was checked by spectrophotometry using a NanoDrop ND2000 (NanoDrop Technologies Inc., Wilmington, DE), and purity of RNA was assessed at an optical density absorbance ratio of 260:280 nm, which ranged from 1.8 to 2.0.
