A slider is pulled by means of a flexible link on a flat solid surface which exhibits anisotropic frictional properties. The resulting trajectory of the slider is assessed experimentally. First, we check that the experimental results are in excellent agreement with a theoretical description of the problem based on an expression of the frictional forces. Second, we point out that the trajectory of the slider can be recovered by the use of a "maximum of energy release rate" criterion which is… CONTINUE READING
