Reciprocating motion friction tests were conducted upon cartilage-on-metal contacts while subjected to a constant load. Initial friction coefficients were compared with repeat friction coefficients following a sufficient load removal period. The repeat friction coefficients were marginally higher than the initial values and both were primarily dependent on… CONTINUE READING
