Wikipedia defines tribology as "the science and engineering of interacting surfaces in relative motion" There are no hard and fast rules for evaluating a polymer's tendency to feed, because the criteria noted--shape, size, and randomness--interact, and frictional force depends on contact area even though the friction coefficient remains essentially the same for given polymers.
