Analysis of adhesion, friction, lubrication and wear are essential in processes involving surfaces that interact with each other under relative motion. Tribo-rheology allows the analysis of the influence of liquid viscosity, rotational speed and contact force on the coefficient of friction between surfaces with different coatings.

We have a tribo-rheometry accessory that allows the construction of Stribeck curves, the determination of the coefficient of friction and the Gumbel number. Such results are presented in a detailed technical report.
