Polyformaldehyde is characterized by a low friction coefficient and good wear characteristic.
The friction coefficient was calculated using the law of Coulomb friction, F = [micro]Fn.
The elastic modulus is 68 GPa, the Poisson's ratio is 0.3, the density is 6538 kg/m^3, and the friction coefficient is 0.3.
In the present work, we focus on proper determination of the friction coefficient. It is a purely phenomenological term, and we determine its value in such a way that the movement of objects corresponds to reality.
The friction coefficients versus friction time for chroming and nonchroming coated T10 steel discs against 20CrMnTi steel pins were illustrated in Figure 2.
This result reflected the diverse trend of friction coefficient with the lowest value of 0.58 at the three loading levels.
A fundamental parameter in the behavior of a CSS is its dynamic friction coefficient [mu].
The friction coefficient required in this model was estimated based on the recommendations of EC3 standard the coefficients vary between 0.2 and 0.5 depending on a diversity of factors in which the roughness of the surfaces in contact is one of the most determinant.
