In the sliding contact of elastomer on a rigid substrate, the coefficient of friction may depend on a large number of system and loading parameters, including normal force, sliding velocity, shape of contacting bodies, surface roughness and so on. It was argued earlier that the contact configuration is determined more immediately through the indentation depth than the normal force, and thus the indentation depth can be considered as one of “robust governing parameters” of friction. Both models… Expand
