Friction testing in car manufacturing

Friction Testing Materials in the Automotive Industry

Using the Bruker UMT TriboLab in the automotive industry to test materials and simulate tests usually performed on a full-scale testing rig.

Nanomechanical Characterisation of Thin Films

Nanomechanical Characterisation of Thin Films

Traditional material characterisation techniques (eg tensile testing) are not always reliable at the nanoscale. True nanoscale sensitivity and the capacity for quantitative analysis are key to understanding the structure and properties of nanoscale components. The Hysitron TI 950 TriboIndenter equipped with the performech™ advanced control module delivers the force and displacement sensitivity necesary for testing materials and structures with nanoscale […]

Measuring surface friction

How is Sliding Friction affected by Surface Texture?

The amount of sliding friction between two surfaces is affected by a number of factors, one of the most obvious being surface texture. But how exactly does the roughness or smoothness of a surface affect its sliding friction? And what about different situations, such as elastic deformation? Donald K. Cohen PhD has published an interesting article […]
