The coefficient of friction (COF), often symbolized by the Greek ... Rougher
surfaces tend to have higher effective values.
It is commonly thought that the static coefficients of friction are higher than the
dynamic or kinetic values. This is a very simplistic statement and quite misleading
For any specific application the ideal method of determining the coefficient of
friction is by trials. A short table is included above the main table to illustrate how
