The pair character of working surfaces - significant elements of the contact & channel model C&CM

Albert Albers, Norbert Burkhardt, Manfred Ohmer
The elementary design model "Contact & Channel Model" (C&CM) is a new access to the treatment of technical systems. It connects the abstract level of the function of a technical system with the detailed level of the system's real shape. This connection is generated by the description of the areas relevant to the function of the system: The Working Surface Pairs and the Channel and Support Structures linking them. Basic hypotheses concerning C&CM are described in [Mat 02]. They define the

Two important hypotheses are that functions can only be generated in Working Surface Pairs and that the fulfilment of any technical function at least needs two Working Surface Pairs and a connecting Channel and Support Structure. In this paper these two basic hypotheses are validated and explained by means of technical examples.
