A closer look at static friction - 17:00-17:30


Material properties of components and additives in lubricants have a strong impact on the static friction properties. As the static friction strongly affects the tribological properties of tribo-systems in start-stop motions, a better understanding of the mechanisms behind static friction and the transition to motion is necessary.

This webinar will show results of a novel approach to characterize the transition from static to dynamic friction. Rheometers featuring a tribological measuring setup were employed for the characterization of dry and lubricated tribo-systems. Two methods, speed ramps (in continuous motion) and torque ramps (in oscillation), were tested and results will be discussed.
