coefficient of sliding friction

coefficient of sliding friction

[¦kō·ə′fish·ənt əv ′slīd·iŋ ′frik·shən]
(mechanics)
The ratio of the frictional force, parallel to the surface of contact, opposing the motion of a body sliding over another, to the force, normal to the surface of contact, with which the bodies press against each other.

4, b, it is intended to test the hypothesis of constant friction torque accepted in the case of dry friction pairs for the symmetrical rotor; if the assumption is confirmed, it allows for finding the coefficient of sliding friction from the rotation pair, parameter required for the simulation of the asymmetric rotor motion.
[mathematical expression not reproducible] (26) resulting in an equation from which the coefficient of sliding friction may be found.
When the inner surface of roller and external surface of axle worn down [1], then wood shavings fall between them, and at 100 % contamination by wood chips ([xi] = 1), we have [f.sub.r] = 0.36, which corresponds to the similar value of coefficient of sliding friction between two metallic surfaces in dry operational conditions--[f.sub.sd] = 0.35 ...
For improving antifriction molecular treatment of inner surface of cylinder at spark ignition engine, the lubricated oils are additive with addition of solid lubricates under micropowder form as: polyethylene terephthalate (PETE), colloidal graphite, bisulfate of molybdenum (Mo[S.sub.2]), which compacted heterogeneous antifriction film, reducing coefficient of sliding friction in piston-cylinder couple (fig.7) [Ungur,2007].
