Lecture 14 Friction

01st February 2011

Introduction
• In preceding chapters, it was assumed that surfaces in contact were either frictionless (surfaces could move freely with respect to each other) or rough (tangential forces prevent relative motion between surfaces). • Actually, no perfectly frictionless surface exists. For two surfaces in contact, tangential forces, called friction forces, will develop if one attempts to move one relative to the other. • However, the friction forces are limited in magnitude and will not prevent motion if sufficiently large forces are applied. • The distinction between frictionless and rough is, therefore, a matter of degree. • There are two types of friction: dry or Coulomb friction and fluid friction. Fluid friction applies to lubricated mechanisms. The present discussion is limited to dry friction between nonlubricated surfaces.

W

Dry friction: Laws of dry friction
• W – weight; N – Reaction of the surface

A

• Only vertical component

N W P

A F N

• F – static friction force : resultant of many forces acting over the entire contact area • Because of irregularities in surface & molecular attraction

The Laws of Dry Friction. Coefficients of Friction
• Block of weight W placed on horizontal surface. Forces acting on block are its weight and reaction of surface N. • Small horizontal force P applied to block. For block to remain stationary, in equilibrium, a horizontal component F of the surface reaction is required. F is a static-friction force. • As P increases, the static-friction force F increases as well until it reaches a maximum value Fm. Fm = µ s N • Further increase in P causes the block to begin to move as F drops to a smaller kinetic-friction force Fk. Fk = µ k N

The Laws of Dry Friction. Coefficients of Friction
• Maximum static-friction force: Fm = µ s N • Kinetic-friction force: Fk = µ k N

µ k ≅ 0.75µ s
• Maximum static-friction force and kineticfriction force are: - proportional to normal force - dependent on type and condition of contact surfaces - independent of contact area

EXPERIMENTAL EVIDENCE: Fm proportional to N Fm = µs N; µs – static friction co-efficient Similarly, Fk = µk N; µk – kinetic friction co-efficient

µk = 0.75 µs

µs and µk depends on the nature of surface; not on contact area of surface

Fk p Less irregularities interaction

F N More irregularities interaction

• ‘P’ is increased; ‘F’ is also increased and continue to oppose ‘P’ • This happens till maximum ‘Fm’ is reached – Body tend to move till Fm is reached • After this point, block is in motion • Block in motion: ‘Fm’ reduced to ‘Fk – lower value – kinetic friction force’ and it remains same – related to irregularities interaction • ‘N’ reaches ‘B’ from ‘A’ – Then tipping occurs about ‘B’

The Laws of Dry Friction. Coefficients of Friction
• Four situations can occur when a rigid body is in contact with a horizontal surface:

• No friction, (Px = 0)

• No motion, (Px < Fm)

• Motion impending, (Px = Fm)

• Motion, (Px > Fm)

Angles of Friction
• It is sometimes convenient to replace normal force N and friction force F by their resultant R:

• No friction

• No motion

• Motion impending

• Motion
Fk µ k N tan φ k = = N N tan φ k = µ k

Fm µ s N tan φ s = = N N tan φ s = µ s

Angles of Friction
• Consider block of weight W resting on board with variable inclination angle q.

• No friction

• No motion

• Motion impending

• Motion

Three categories of problems
First category: to know a body slips or not

• All applied forces are given, co-effts. of friction are known • Find whether the body will remain at rest or slide • Friction force ‘F’ required to maintain equilibrium is unknown (magnitude not equal to µs N) Solution
• Determine ‘F’ required for equilibrium, by solving equilibrium equns; Also find ‘N’ • Compare ‘F’ obtained with maximum value ‘Fm’ i.e., from Fm = µs N • ‘F’ is smaller or equal to ‘Fm’, then body is at rest • Otherwise body starts moving • Actual friction force magnitude = Fk = µk N R.

The homogeneous semi-cylinder rests on a horizontal surface and is subjected to the force P applied to a cord firmly attached to its periphery. The force P is slowly increased and kept normal to the flat surface of the semi-cylinder. If slipping is observed just as θ reaches 400, determine the coefficient of static friction µs and the value of P when slipping occurs.

Sample Problem 14.5
SOLUTION • Calculate lead angle and pitch angle. • Using block and plane analogy with impending motion up the plane, calculate the clamping force with a force triangle. A clamp is used to hold two pieces of wood together as shown. The clamp has a double square thread of mean diameter equal to 10 mm with a pitch of 2 mm. The coefficient of friction between threads is ms = 0.30. If a maximum torque of 40 N*m is applied in tightening the clamp, determine (a) the force exerted on the pieces of wood, and (b) the torque required to loosen the clamp. • With impending motion down the plane, calculate the force and torque required to loosen the clamp.

Journal Bearings. Axle Friction
• Journal bearings provide lateral support to rotating shafts. Thrust bearings provide axial support • Frictional resistance of fully lubricated bearings depends on clearances, speed and lubricant viscosity. Partially lubricated axles and bearings can be assumed to be in direct contact along a straight line. • Forces acting on bearing are weight W of wheels and shaft, couple M to maintain motion, and reaction R of the bearing. • Reaction is vertical and equal in magnitude to W. • Reaction line of action does not pass through shaft center O; R is located to the right of O, resulting in a moment that is balanced by M. • Physically, contact point is displaced as axle “climbs” in bearing.

• Angle between R and normal to bearing surface is the angle of kinetic friction jk. M = Rr sin φ k

Sample Problem 14.7
SOLUTION: • Since angle of contact is smaller, slippage will occur on pulley B first. Determine belt tensions based on pulley B. • Taking pulley A as a free-body, sum moments about pulley center to determine torque. A flat belt connects pulley A to pulley B. The coefficients of friction are ms = 0.25 and mk = 0.20 between both pulleys and the belt. Knowing that the maximum allowable tension in the belt is 3000-N, determine the largest torque which can be exerted by the belt on pulley A.
