True, accurate, quantitative measurements still present a challenge to scientists and technologists in this field although, as tribologists are becoming increasingly aware, tables of friction coefficients for a different materials are only marginally useful since the slider material needs to be known and the property is known to be effected by temperature, humidity, pressure, chemical environment and test-machine dynamics (14).
