A Parametric Study of Rubber Friction
|Date Published||September 23, 2010|
The frictional forces generated between rubber and rigid surfaces depend on numerous factors. A parametric study of rubber friction is conducted using an Outside Drum Friction Machine. The objective of this study is to determine the effects of machine test conditions on rubber friction. The effects of varying load, speed, water flow rate, and test surface roughness on rubber friction will be presented.
