  • TITLE: Influences of the Textured Surface Micro-Texture Depth on the Friction Coefficient

    AUTHORS: Moussa Magara Traore

    KEYWORDS: Friction Coefficient, Tribology, Textured Surfaces

    JOURNAL NAME: World Journal of Mechanics, Vol.10 No.12, December 17, 2020

    ABSTRACT: The use of textured surfaces in lubrication to improve the tribological characteristics has been widely studied. The understanding of the textured surface geometric parameters influences on these tribological characteristics could help to improve their applications in industry. In this paper, we purpose to analyze the influence of the micro-texture depth on the friction coefficient experimentally. The experiment is conducted using different copper alloy samples have been the first laser textured with different micro-hole depth (40.83 μm and 46.36 μm). A 3D electronic Olympus microscope is used to visualize the shapes of the holes and find the depths. Then, the friction test has been conducted using these samples with the same velocity. The time variation of the friction coefficient is plotted and analyzed. The analysis of time variation of the friction coefficient shows a reduction of friction coefficient with the increase of the micro-hole depth has been observed. In some cases, this reduction is significant.
