In another study, Ravanis, Koliopoulus, and Boilevin (2008) focused on the change in preschool children's understanding about factors for rolling friction by examining changes in their expressions about the concepts of surface and weight.
There is little or no oil film shear in ball bearings which operate with rolling friction only so that the TRIPLEX CERAMIC[TM] accelerates much faster than turbochargers using sleeve bearings systems.
The gravitational attraction of all the matter in the universe was acting like rolling friction, gradually slowing down the expansion.
Effect of sliding and rolling friction on the energy-force parameters during hot rolling in four-high stands, Russ.
In rolling friction, exhibited in rolling element bearings, there is still resistance to motion, albeit orders of magnitude smaller than for sliding friction.
If these can be replaced by angular contact ball bearings, manufactured to the original main dimensions in order to guarantee that the mating parts can be used further, it leads to a dramatic decrease of the frictional losses as the sliding friction of the tapered rollers against the shoulder of the cone is replaced by the rolling friction of the balls in the ultra-precise raceway.
