The apparatus used to measure tribological properties is named tribometer. A tribometer creates relative motion, either unidirectional (rotatory) or bidirectional (reciprocating), rubbing two surfaces against each other.
These observations were substantiated by recent in vitro tribological experiments on ZrO2 coatings [48], bulk ceramics [49] and TiO-TiN coatings [50], where considerable improvement in wettability and consequent reduction in wear rate were observed during standard tribometer tests.
Typically the tribological and electrochemical parameters must be controlled and recorded during tribocorrosion testing, using a tribometer and potentiostat/glavanostat.
This testing used a pin-on-disk tribometer and styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) as the elastomeric material.
The tribometer used in the dry testing carried out to confirm the existence of [F.sub.Hs] was configured with static weights at the end of an elastic arm furnishing the applied loads in the desired increments.
Logistic regression is a natural candidate for mathematical modeling of fall accidents and, more recently, for the modeling of tribometers, that have a slip/no-slip output.
Monitoring floor slipperiness using an instrument called a tribometer allows businesses to record quantitative information that allows them to apply quality-control protocols to maintenance procedures, in order to minimize fall-accident rates.
In laboratory, the interface parameters are measured by apparatus called "tribometer." Until now, many types of tribometer were developed as discussed elsewhere [4, 11-14, 18].
Kaplan has also shown in his study, using his tribometer, the relationship between the interface parameters and the interface friction which determines the pumping pressure.
