Abstract : The need for coefficient of friction information often arises in the solution of a problem by an engineer who may not be concerned with friction on a day-to-day basis, and therefore not current on the derivation and use of such information. The memorandum reviews the theory of friction, discusses the various factors that influence it, and points out some of the common misconceptions in the use of coefficients of friction. A section is specifically devoted to friction in metalworking operations, and another covers rolling friction specifically. (Author)
