An Introduction to Tribo-Rheometry: Quantifying Friction

An Introduction to Tribo-Rheometry: Quantifying Friction Tribology complements rheology, providing information on solid-solid interactions that adds insight to the bulk fluid measurements of rheology. Tribology is especially concerned with quantifying the coefficient of friction as a function of sliding speed and load force, under dry or lubricated conditions. This provides useful information about lubrication, wear,…
