This stifling heat, penetrating through the partitions of the projectile, is produced by its friction on the atmospheric strata.
It is fifty-five minutes past ten; we have been gone about eight minutes; and if our initiatory speed has not been checked by the friction, six seconds would be enough for us to pass through the forty miles of atmosphere which surrounds the globe.
Hundreds of meteorites, ignited by the friction of the atmosphere, irradiated the shadow of the luminous train, and lined the cloudy parts of the disc with their fire.
RTP measured the static and dynamic coefficients of friction of various combinations of resins and friction-reducing additives.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is offering demonstrations of its Highway Friction Tester (HFT) to State departments of transportation.
The most common positive effect in the boundary friction between surfaces with a partially regular microrelief can be explained in relation to the lubrication conditions improved by increasing oil absorption (Schneider 1982, 1998, 2001).
Policy responses that fail to take into account how quickly technologies and the innovations they enable are evolving can cause more, rather than less, friction.

This coating masks the micro-texture of the aggregate and significantly reduces the overall surface friction value achievable, to the extent that the FAA, ICAO and other civil aviation organisations' friction guidelines cannot be met (see FAA AC 150/5320-12C).
FX-7100 COF tester is a full featured digital-based friction tester, which can be run as a stand-alone machine or a computer-assisted tester with optional FX-7000 quality control software for automatic calculation and graphical display of static and kinetic friction data.
