The change of the coefficient of friction in polymers at variable sliding speed is determined by rheological properties, and thus the temperature and the impact of fillers addition.
Considering the average coefficient of friction and the specific wear rate, it was found that the specimen containing 9% ulexite was better.
A previous study has shown that a higher coefficient of friction between the shoe and floor results in lower extremity biomechanics associated with increased loads to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during dynamic cutting tasks.
The test was conducted at the lowest loading level (1 N), and the highest coefficient of friction was 0.14 at 1 Hz.
Owing to the absence of an embedded model for brake friction generation, experimental results from brake dynamometric test rig are considered in the vehicle dynamics simulation software to reproduce the real behaviour of the brake linings coefficient of friction. The simulations are performed for an electric vehicle equipped with an electrohydraulic brake system and individual in-wheel electric motors.
It was found that, at a load of 5N, the coefficient of friction of nanolamellar Mo[S.sub.2] doped with copper nanoparticles is lower than that for doped commercial Mo[S.sub.2].
From these results the appropriate coefficient of friction for the defined characteristic points of the oscillatory link mechanism has been calculated radial forces of different weights:
In carefully controlled lab experiments, Ben-David found that points along the contact surface could sustain up to five times as much sideways force as the coefficient of friction predicted, and the object still wouldn't budge.
Designed to prevent sticking and simplify catheter removal in fuse welding and tipping operations, these stainless steel or nitinol-forming mandrels exhibit a 0.05 coefficient of friction per ASTM-1894.
The coolant stream, when aimed at a close range of an insert, lubricates the cutting edge, thus reducing the coefficient of friction and preventing the chips from adhering to the insert.
There are three versions of the coatings: Balinit A Arctic--TiN--has a surface hardness of 2300HV and a coefficient of friction against steel of 0.4; Balinit D Arctic--CrN--has a surface hardness of 1750HV and a coefficient of friction against steel of 0.5; and Balinit Futura Nano Arctic--TiAIN--is a nano-layered coating that has a surface hardness of 3300HV and a coefficient of friction against steel of 0.5.
