surafce and interface micromechanics

I am interested in studying the method of modeling the interface bechaviors in the microstructure of porous metallic materials recently,  i am a newer in this field, and cannot understand the content of the papers in this field, so i wanna find some books or literatures about the basic knowledge of the micromechanics of interface. Does anyone have a good recommendation?

Is Tribology Approaching Its Golden Age? Grand Challenges in Engineering Education and Tribological Research

An interesting paper by VL Popov which suggests many problems of tribology are still very far from being remotely solved.  Despite the very detailed theories for example on rough contact using fractal surfaces on which we have debated mainly academically , there is not a single theory for any quantitative prediction of friction coefficient which can vary by 1 order of magnitude and its dependence on many variables, let alone wear coefficient which can vary up to 7 orders of magnitude.  What is left to do, other than measure?   Is tribology bound to be in practice just an experimental area? 

Presentation of Cast2cloud, a web-based platform for mechanical and thermal simulations

Dear iMechanica,

We are pleased to present Cast2cloud (http://cast2cloud.com), the first and only web-based platform for interacting with Cast3M. The latter is a finite element software developed by the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) for mechanical and thermal simulations. It is available free of charge for teaching and research. For further information, please refer to http://www-cast3m.cea.fr/.
