Synthetic friction force algorithms provide simulated static friction forces as well as dynamic friction forces. On either side of a hand-control element reference position a small static friction zone is established. As long as the hand-control element is within this static friction zone, the reference position remains constant and the control element drive motor generates a centering force proportional to the distance of the hand-control element from the reference position; a force urging the hand-control element toward the reference position. When the relative position of the hand-control element reaches or exceeds an edge of the static friction zone, it enters the dynamic friction zone. The motor applies a constant dynamic friction force, urging the hand-control element toward the reference position and the reference position is translated so that the edge of the static friction zone is translated to the current hand-control element position.
TY - GEN. T1 - GPS-based real-time identification of tire-road friction coefficient. AU - Hahn, J. O.. AU - Rajamani, Rajesh. AU - Alexander, Lee G. PY - 2002/1/1. Y1 - 2002/1/1. N2 - Vehicle control systems such as collision avoidance, adaptive cruise control and automated lane-keeping systems as well as ABS and stability control systems can benefit significantly from being made road-adaptive. The estimation of tire-road friction coefficient at the wheels allows the control algorithm in such systems to adapt to external driving conditions. This paper develops a new tire-road friction coefficient estimation algorithm based on measurements related to the lateral dynamics of the vehicle. A lateral tire force model parameterized as a function of slip angle, friction coefficient, normal force and cornering stiffness is used. A real-time parameter identification algorithm that utilizes measurements from a differential GPS system and a gyroscope is used to identify the tire-road friction coefficient ...

We present an investigation of the temperature-dependent friction behavior of PTFE, MoS 2, and PTFE-on- MoS 2. Friction behavior was measured while continuously varying contact temperature in the range -150 to 175°C while sliding in dry nitrogen, as well as for self-mated PTFE immersed in liquid nitrogen. These results contrast with previous reports of monotonic inverse temperature dependent friction behavior, as well as reported high-friction transitions and plateaus at temperatures below about -20°C that were not observed, providing new insights about the molecular mechanisms of macro-scale friction. The temperature-dependent friction behavior characteristic of self-mated PTFE was found also on the PTFE-on-MoS 2 sliding contact, suggesting that PTFE friction was defined by sub-surface deformation mechanisms and internal friction even when sliding against a lamellar lubricant with extremely low friction coefficient (μ ~ 0.02). The various relaxation temperatures of PTFE were found in the ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Molecular dynamics simulation of atomic-scale frictional behavior of corrugated nano-structured surfaces. AU - Kim, Hyun Joon. AU - Kim, Dae Eun. PY - 2012/7/7. Y1 - 2012/7/7. N2 - Surface morphology is one of the critical parameters that affect the frictional behavior of two contacting bodies in relative motion. It is important because the real contact area as well as the contact stiffness is dictated by the micro- and nano-scale geometry of the surface. In this regard, the frictional behavior may be controlled by varying the surface morphology through nano-structuring. In this study, molecular dynamics simulations were conducted to investigate the effects of contact area and structural stiffness of corrugated nano-structures on the fundamental frictional behavior at the atomic-scale. The nano-structured surface was modeled as an array of corrugated carbon atoms with a given periodicity. It was found that the friction coefficient of the nano-structured surface was lower than ...
The data is summarized (Table 2) by means and standard deviations. Friction was evaluated and compared in grams-force (gF) under traction with a round 0.020-in stainless steel wire. The findings suggest lower friction means for the self-ligating groups compared with conventional brackets tied with elastomeric ligatures. A more effective frictional control was achieved in the passive self-ligating system when these brackets were tested with no angulation. Under a 2.5° angulation, the frictional force increased in the self-ligating and conventional groups (p , 0.01).. ANOVA revealed associations between frictional forces and self-ligating systems. The p value (p , 0.01) found using the Bonferroni multiple comparisons test indicated differences between groups (Table 2).. DISCUSSION. Surface friction generated by sliding an orthodontic archwire inside a bracket slot opposes the tendency of tooth movement intended when delivering orthodontic forces. A greater friction effect can be observed in ...
The friction reducing capability of engine oils in the piston ring/cylinder bore contact was investigated under fully-flooded and starved lubrication conditions at 100° C using a laboratory piston ring/cylinder bore friction rig. The rig is designed to acquire instantaneous transient measurements of applied loads and friction forces at the ring/bore interface in reciprocating motion over a 50.8 mm stroke. The effects of increasing load and speed on the friction coefficient have been compared with new and used engine oils of different viscosity that were formulated with and without friction modifying additives. Test results with fully formulated engine oils containing molybdenum dithiocarbamate (MoDTC) show that friction is always lower than that obtained with non-friction modified oils but in regions of persistent starvation the coefficient of friction can increase significantly, approaching levels equivalent to fully-flooded non-friction modified formulations. The laboratory rig was able to ...

A series of ball-disk contact friction tests were carried out using a microtribometer to study the tribological characteristics of steel/steel rubbing pairs immersed in 47 different organic compounds as lubricant base oils. The structures and their friction data were included in a back-propagation neural network (BPNN) quantitative structure tribo-ability relationship (QSTR) model. Following leave-one-out (LOO) cross-validation, the BPNN model shows good predictability and accuracy for the friction parameter (R2 = 0.994, R2(LOO) = 0.849, and q2 = 0.935). Connectivity indices (CHI) show the large positive contribution to friction, which imply that friction performance has a strong correlation with molecular structure. The BPNN-QSTR models can flexibly and easily estimate the friction properties of lubricant base oils.. ...
Experimental data on the effect of plastic deformation on the carbon internal friction peak in austenitic steels (Finkelshtein-Rosin peak) were analyzed and it was shown that the general trend is that the peak height increases whereas the peak temperature is rather stable, or decreases. To explain this effect a computer simulation of the temperature dependence of the internal friction was performed using a model crystal without a dislocation or containing one screw dislocation taking into account long-range C-C and C-Ni interactions and C-dislocation interactions. The C-dislocation interaction was calculated by the so-called hybrid method. It was shown that the elastic field around a dislocation enhances the asymmetry of the displacements of metal atoms neighbouring interstitial atoms and, thus, increases the height of the peak. On the other hand, the weak energy for carbon-dislocation interaction in the f.c.c. lattice does not lead to significant changes in carbon atom energies. Thus, the ...
A novel microtribometer is developed to characterize microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sidewall friction with high resolution. The design is based on a rotational grating displacement sensing mechanism, with which 1.2-nm sensing sensitivity can be achieved. Employing it, the adhesion force (1.85 N) and the coefficients of static (0.801) and kinetic (0.363) frictions on the sidewall of an as-fabricated MEMS device have been measured. Besides these, the whole process of stick-slip associated with the movement under friction, including the transition between static and kinetic frictional states, has also been clearly revealed. To reduce friction, a localized lubrication method is developed, with which liquid lubricant can be applied directly onto the desired region without affecting other components on the same device. From the experimental results, reduced values in adhesion force (1.23 N) and coefficients of friction (0.262 for static and 0.183 for kinetic) are obtained in the same MEMS ...

Friction drilling is a novel hole-making process that can be performed on thin-walled sheet metals. The friction between a rapid-rotating conical tool and a sheet metal workpiece generates heat to soften and displace the material to form a hole. The bushing is formed in-situ from the workpiece. This experimental study investigated the effects of feed rate and spindle speed on the thrust load curve of friction drilling. Generating a good quality bushing has been a challenge in friction drilling. A counter-bore die was proposed and implemented to eliminate cracks and petal formation. Threads were tapped to demonstrate the improvement of the bushing quality. The present work also evaluated the feasibility of joining sheet metals with friction drilling. It was found that under an appropriate process condition, it is possible to perform friction drilling through two metal sheets to create a weld joint ...

Purpose The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of the magnetic field to the friction coefficient in the rolling element bearings which exists in electric motors. Design/methodology/approach To achieve this, the test rig was modified to adjust the density of the magnetic flux applied to the rolling ball element bearing. Experiments were carried out in the magnetic field from 0 to 7.5 mTesla at magnetic flux density range from 15, 40 and 65 N constant loads. Also, its rotary speed selected as 100, 200, 400, 800 to 1200 rpm, respectively. Findings In the majority of the experiments, it was observed that the magnetic field affected the friction coefficient. This influence reduced the friction coefficient in some experimental conditions and increased in some of them. Originality/value In the literature, there are very few studies on the effect of magnetic flux density to the friction coefficient in these rolling element bearings. It has become clear that more studies have been conducted ...
According to the HK model of dislocation-assisted frictional slip processes, the sliding mechanisms of single-asperity friction can be classified into three categories, i.e. concurrent slip, single-dislocation-assisted (SDA) slip and MDC slip, depending on the contact size. These three regions are shown in figure 7. The boundary between the concurrent- and SDA-slip regions is depicted as line l1. The other boundary between SDA- and MDC-slip regions is represented by line i1. In figure 7, the scale dependence of the friction stress in SDA-slip region can be described by a series of dashed lines depending on the Rice-Thomson parameter η (see Hurtado & Kim 1999a,b; for details). The AFM friction data measured by Carpick et al. (1996a) lie inside the concurrent-slip region. In this range, the friction stress is independent of the contact size, as shown in figure 7 by two sets of up triangles connected by a line. However, as mentioned earlier, the friction stress drifted from 910 down to 270 MPa, as ...

One of the most important parameters specifying the usability of the miniaturised electrohydraulic servomechanism includes a static friction degree in its slide pairs, i.e. resistance of the sliders movement from rest after some time of its staying at rest under pressure. Therefore, at the stage of designing and construction of the electrohydraulic servomechanism, it is important to determine the greatest static friction degree, which may arise in the slider hydraulic pair of this device during its operation. The objective of this article is to present a method for estimating the maximum static friction values in the slide pair based on the extreme value theory. The operation and loading conditions of the slide pair of the electrohydraulic servomechanism for the unmanned aircraft control system were described. The procedure for estimating the maximum static friction degree in the slide pair with the use of the extreme and probabilistic grid was presented. The extreme and probabilistic grid ...

Aim Surface tribological properties of a tendon in terms of coefficient of friction and lubrication mechanism are expected to change with the progression of surface tears which can affect the optimal function of the tendon. This study investigated whether coefficient of friction proportionally increases with the progression of a surface tear in a bovine tendon model. Methods The study was performed using a pin-on-glass tribometer and bovine tendon samples (n = 16) divided into 4 groups. One group of tendons had no surface tears and thus served as a control, whilst the other 3 groups comprised tendons with increasing severity of artificially-induced surface tears. The coefficient of friction and the lubrication mechanism of the four groups of samples were investigated, calculated and compared. Results Statistical analysis showed significant change in coefficient of friction between the control group and the group with minimal tear (p , 0.05) while no difference noted between the groups of ...

By simulating earthquakes in a lab, engineers at Caltech have documented the evolution of friction during an earthquake-measuring what could once only be inferred, and shedding light on one of the biggest unknowns in earthquake modeling.. Before an earthquake, static friction helps hold the two sides of a fault immobile and pressed against each other. During the passage of an earthquake rupture, that friction becomes dynamic as the two sides of the fault grind past one another. Dynamic friction evolves throughout an earthquake, affecting how much and how fast the ground will shake and thus, most importantly, the destructiveness of the earthquake.. Friction plays a key role in how ruptures unzip faults in the earths crust, says Vito Rubino, research scientist at Caltechs Division of Engineering and Applied Science (EAS). Assumptions about dynamic friction affect a wide range of earthquake science predictions, including how fast ruptures will occur, the nature of ground shaking, and residual ...

Our walking and running movement patterns require friction between shoes and ground. The surface of ice is characterised by low friction in several naturally occurring conditions, and compromises our typical locomotion pattern. Ice skates take advantage of this slippery nature of ice; the first ice skates were made more than 4000 years ago, and afforded the development of a very efficient form of human locomotion. This review presents an overview of the physics of ice surface friction, and discusses the most relevant factors that can influence ice skates dynamic friction coefficient. It also presents the main stages in the development of ice skating, describes the associated implications for exercise physiology, and shows the extent to which ice skating performance improved through history. This article illustrates how technical and materials development, together with empirical understanding of muscle biomechanics and energetics, led to one of the fastest forms of human powered locomotion.

The adhesion and friction between individual nanotubes was investigated in ambient using a dynamic atomic force microscope (AFM) operating in force-calibration mode to capture force-versus-distance curves. A multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT) tip attached to a conventional AFM probe was brought into contact with and then ramped in vertical direction against a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) bridge suspended over a 2-μm-wide trench. The interaction between nanotubes altered the oscillation amplitude, phase lag, and average deflection of AFM cantilever, from which the interacting forces between nanotubes are quantitatively derived. During ramping, a stick-slip motion was found to dominate the sliding between the nanotubes. The stick was attributed to the presence of high-energy points, such as structural defects or coating of amorphous carbon, on the surface of the MWNT tip. The coefficients of static friction and shear strength between nanotubes were evaluated to be about 0.2 and 1.4 GPa, ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Friction and wear of monolithic and glass-fiber reinforced PA66 in humid conditions. AU - Kim, J. W.. AU - Jang, Ho. AU - Woo Kim, Jin. PY - 2014/1/15. Y1 - 2014/1/15. N2 - Effect of water absorption on friction and wear of polyamides, namely monolithic polyamide 66 (PA66) and PA66 composite with 30. wt% of short glass fibers, was investigated using a block-on-ring-type tribotester. Monolithic PA66 showed high wear rates after water absorption because of softening by the absorbed water molecules and increased interfacial adhesion on the steel counter surface. Degraded wear characteristics of monolithic PA66 by chain scission of the amide functional group by water molecules were substantially improved by short glass-fiber reinforcement. The improved friction and wear characteristics were attributed to contact plateaus produced during sliding, which were held by condensed glass fibers, suggesting possible applications of PA66 in a humid environment by reinforcing it with short ...
Surfaces of hydrophobic polymers are treated to reduce their friction resistance characteristics when in contact with an aqueous environment by exposing the surfaces to an oxidation treatment, preferably by use of radio frequency glow discharge. This oxidation is followed by exposure to atmospheric air, until there is a substantial reduction in the air-water contact angle of the surfaces. The reduced friction resistance characteristics are important in aqueous applications where there is movement between the surfaces of two polymeric materials, such as in double slideable catheters and similar medical products. This process also provides lower coefficients of friction for general polymeric products in contact with water and aqueous solutions.
Intertrigo is a common skin condition resulting from inflammation of the skin folds. Intertrigo is generally caused by friction between two skin surfaces, but can also result from (and be aggravated by) maceration, friction, lack of air circulation, moisture, and heat exposure (1).
The main synovial joints such as hips and knees are uniquely efficient tribological systems, able to articulate more than a wide range of shear rates with a friction coefficient involving the sliding cartilage surfaces as low as 0. 001 up to pressures of more than 100 atm. No human-made materials can match this. The means by which many of these surfaces maintain their very low friction has been intensively studied for decades and has been caused by fluid-film and boundary lubrication. Right 4 flex cena here, we focus especially about the latter: the decrease of friction by molecular layers at the moving cartilage surfaces. In particular, we discuss such lubrication in the light of very recent advances in our understanding of boundary effects in aqueous press depending on the paradigms of hydration lubrication and of the synergism between distinct molecular components of the synovial joints (namely hyaluronan, lubricin, and phospholipids) in permitting this lubrication ...
Tribological behaviors of 316SS/bronze (BJP316), 420SS/bronze (BJP420) and WC/bronze (BJPWC) composites fabricated using binder jetting were evaluated systematically by using a scratch tester and dry reciprocating ball-on-disc tribometer under various loads. The results showed that the BJP316, BJP420 and BJPWC are mainly subjected to delamination, abrasion and spalling damages, respectively. The scratch resistance mainly depends on the soft bronze infiltrant. The friction coefficients in dry sliding all decrease with increasing loads, whereas the wear rates present different trends with loads. All composites exhibit comparable wear resistance to traditionally fabricated counterparts. The findings will help to improve the tribological design of mechanical elements fabricated by binder jetting and lay the foundation for the applications in the tribological field.
The main objective of this thesis work was to gain understanding of the layer properties and polymer structures that were able to aid lubrication in aqueous media. To this end, three types of polyelectrolytes: a diblock copolymer, a train-of-brushes and two brush-with-anchor mucins have been utilized. Their lubrication ability in the boundary lubrication regime has been examined by Atomic Force Microscopy with colloidal probe. The interfacial behavior of the thermoresponsive diblock copolymer, PIPOZ60-b-PAMPTAM17,on silica was studied in the temperature interval 25-50 ˚C. The main finding is that adsorption hysteresis, due to the presence of trapped states, is important when the adsorbed layers are in contact with a dilute polymer solution. The importance of trapped states was also demonstrated in the measured friction forces, where significantly lower friction forces, at a given temperature, were encountered on cooling than on the preceding heating stage, which was attributed to increased ...

Post-test characterisation using 3D optical surface profilometry and scanning electron microscopy was performed in order to investigate the mechanical and tribological response of the coatings. The results show that scratch induced coating cracking mainly is restricted to larger droplets showing a low interfacial bonding to the adjacent coating matrix. The influence of coating defects on the cohesive strength, i.e., the tendency to chipping of small coating fragments, was found to be relatively small. In contrast, the presence of defects may have a significant impact on the interfacial adhesive strength, increasing the tendency to spalling. In sliding contact, surface defects such as droplets and craters have a ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of travel speed on quality and welding efficiency of friction stir welded AZ31B magnesium alloy. AU - Baghdadi, Amir Hossein. AU - Selamat, Nor Fazilah Mohamad. AU - Sajuri, Zainuddin. AU - Kokabi, Amir Hossein. PY - 2018/1/1. Y1 - 2018/1/1. N2 - Weight reduction is one of the most concerning issues of automotive and aircraft industries in reducing fuel consumption. Magnesium (Mg) alloys are the lightest alloys which can be used in the structure due to low density and high strength to weight ratio. Developing a reliable joining process of magnesium alloys is required due to limited ductility and low workability at room temperature. Friction stir welding (FSW) is a solid-state welding process that can be performed to produce sound joints in magnesium alloys. Researchers have performed investigations on the effect of rotation and travel speeds in FSW of AZ31B magnesium alloy. However, there is lack of study on the FSW parameters, i.e. travel speed below 50 mm/min and ...

In this work, dual implantation of Cr+ and N2+ ions on electroplated Ni substrates have been investigated for N2+ implantation energies of 140 keV, 100 keV and 60 keV. The implanted specimens have been analyzed by glow discharge optical emission spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, nano-indentation, coefficient of friction, nano-wear and potentiodynamic corrosion curves. The properties of the dual implanted samples have been compared to Cr+ or N2+ implanted specimens. The microstructural and mechanical properties of the Ni plates depend on the penetration ranges of the Cr and N atomic profiles obtained after the implantation process. The increase of hardness reduced the coefficient of friction of the samples and the wear rates. Preferential formation of Cr-N over Ni-N compounds has been observed when the Cr and N atomic profiles coexist within the Ni matrix. The potentiodynamic corrosion curves in acidic solutions revealed that the presence of Me-N species is detrimental for the chemical stability ...
Objectives: Falls are a leading cause of injury at work, and slipping is the predominant cause of falling. Prior research has suggested a modest correlation between objective measures (such as coefficient of friction, COF) and subjective measures of slipperiness (such as worker perceptions) in the workplace. However, the degree of association between subjective measures and the actual risk of slipping at the workplace is unknown. This study examined the association between perception of slipperiness and the risk of slipping. Methods: 475 workers from 36 limited-service restaurants participated in a 12-week prospective cohort study. At baseline, demographic information was collected, participants rated floor slipperiness in eight areas of the restaurant, and work environment factors, such as COF, were measured. Restaurant-level and area-level mean perceptions of slipperiness were calculated. Participants then reported their slip experience at work on a weekly basis for the next 12 weeks. The

N2 - Al-Si-Cu alloy ADC12 precursor, fabricated by the friction stir welding (FSW) route, was foamed during the traversing of an FSW tool along a steel plate. The ADC12 precursor can be sufficiently foamed at a tool traversing rate of v = 10 mm/min. The precursor began to foam as the tool approached the precursor and gradually foamed as the tool traversed. There is an optimum tool traversing rate to induce sufficient foaming of the precursor. ADC12 foam obtained with v = 10 mm/min ...
Tsetse flies are the cyclical vectors of deadly human and animal trypanosomes in sub-Saharan Africa. Tsetse control is a key component for the integrated management of both plagues, but local eradication successes have been limited to less than 2% of the infested area. This is attributed to either resurgence of residual populations that were omitted from the eradication campaign or reinvasion from neighboring infested areas. Here we focused on Glossina palpalis gambiensis, a riverine tsetse species representing the main vector of trypanosomoses in West Africa. We mapped landscape resistance to tsetse genetic flow, hereafter referred to as friction, to identify natural barriers that isolate tsetse populations. For this purpose, we fitted a statistical model of the genetic distance between 37 tsetse populations sampled in the region, using a set of remotely sensed environmental data as predictors. The least-cost path between these populations was then estimated using the predicted friction map. ...
I like the friction method a lot...prefer the Smooth Away product...not as abrasive as other products I tried. Removal takes longer than shaving, but it definately leaves your skin much softer, clearer. Ive shaved my legs since 3rd grade (dark, semi-coarse hair) and thought this thing wouldnt work on me. I was wrong. I still shave when Im in a hurry, but I prefer the Smooth Away method and product. They also have a moisturizer that helps slow hair re-growth...really nice stuff, smells good too. Took a couple of months to see the benefit of the lotion, but I did. My son is now using these products on his back and shoulders and has found it to work for him too...and he doesnt get the eruptions (pimples) he got with wax or depilatories ...

Eleven U.K. laboratories performed dry pin-on-disk wear tests on a 95% alumina ceramic under a load of 40 N and at a sliding speed of 0.1 ms-1. Specimens were supplied with polished and ground finishes; the ground finish gave higher wear and lower friction than the polished specimens. Subsidiary experiments showed a large effect of humidity on wear with high wear rates at low humidity levels. The measure of wear with the best repeatability was scar size measurements at 5%, and the worst was mass loss measurements at 42% (expressed as ratios of 95% confidence intervals to the mean values). The reproducibility of friction measurements was 14%. ...

Normal and friction forces were measured between physically adsorbed and chemically grafted layers of hyaluronic acid (HA), an anionic polyelectrolyte in presence the of lubricin (Lub), a mucinous glycoprotein on mica surface using a Surface Forces Apparatus (SFA) with a surface radius R~2cm. This work demonstrates that high friction coefficients does not necessarily correlate to surface damage and that chemically grafted HA acts synergistically with Lub to provide enhanced wear protection to the surface. Increasing the concentration of Lub enhances the threshold load that a chemically grafted HA surface can be subjected to before the onset of wear. However, Lub fails to provide wear protection if HA is physically bound (not chemically grafted) to the mica surface and damage occurs at loads less than 1 mN (Pressure, P, 10atm) regardless of the amount of Lub, indicating that the molecules in the bulk play little or no role in camouflaging the surface from damage. Lub penetrates into the ...

Articular joints in human body are uniquely efficient lubrication systems. While the cartilage surfaces slide past each other under physiological working conditions (pressure of tens of atmospheres and shear rates up to 106 - 107 Hz), the friction coefficient (μ) achieves extremely low values (down to 0.001) never successfully reached by mechanical prosthetic devices. Friction studies on polymer brushes attached to surfaces have recently demonstrated (17) their ability to reduce friction between the rubbing surfaces to extremely low values by means of the hydrated ions and the charges on the polymer chains. We propose that the extremely efficient lubrication observed in living joints arises from the presence of a brush-like phase of charged macromolecules at the surface of the cartilage superficial zone: hydration layers which surround the charges on the cartilage macromolecules might provide a lubricating ball-bearing-like effect as demonstrated for the synthetic polyelectrolytes (17). In this ...
To understand the NFC in graphite/mica heterojunctions annealed under dry nitrogen, we first consider several possible mechanisms reported in literatures. The adhesion-induced NFC is due to the lifting and wrinkling of top materials on substrates during tip retraction (14, 15) and thus only emerges in the unloading regime, which is not consistent with our results where NFC is observed both in loading and unloading processes. Meanwhile, pressure-induced flattening of potential energy surface corrugation can result in NFC for both loading and unloading processes according to theoretical predictions (8, 10, 26). However, the pressure needed to induce this effect is on the order of 100 GPa, which is three orders of magnitude higher than the maximum pressure of 0.75 GPa in our experiments (fig. S8). Very recently, NFC is found in superlubric graphite/h-BN heterojunctions using MD simulations. It originates from the load-induced suppression of the out-of-plane distortions in Moiré superstructure, ...

The difference between dancing on a floor and skating on ice is the lack of friction in skating. Skates allow a person to move very quickly across the ice because there is very little friction between the blade of the skate and the ice. This lack of friction is partially due to the interaction of steel with ice and partially due to the very small surface area making contact with the ice. Friction from the metal rubbing against the ice causes it to melt. This is also the reason when you are ice skating a track is formed. The track is because of the gap that has been made when the ice melts. The water formed may help lubricate and reduce friction along the blade ...
