The mechanisms that generate adhesion forces in liquid lubricants are studied under various experimental conditions. These forces occur between two surfaces when they are detached in the normal direction under static boundary lubrication conditions. The adhesion force is not influenced by the speed at which the upper specimen is pulled up, but is influenced by the viscosity of the lubricant. The adhesion force under boundary lubrication is much greater than that under hydrodynamic lubrication, and it is closely related to the compressibility of the lubricant.
