Experimental Characterization of Micro-Friction on a Mica Surface Using the Lateral Motion and Force Measurement Capability of an Instrumented Indenter

An experimental characterization of friction forces between asymmetric surfaces in the micro-regime is presented. The lateral motion and force-measurement capability of an instrumented indenter (triboindenter) is characterized and explored for determining friction properties at low velocities. Friction experiments are performed using the triboindenter with… CONTINUE READING
