Friction Coeeficient

  1. Jun 7, 2004 #1
    I would like to know some details about the Friction Coefficient .
    I want to know the friction coefficient between Silicon carbide and any fluid and also betweeen Steel and any Fluid.
    Any help regarding my question will be appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance.

    With Regards

    Is this in the context of tooling...abrasion/wear resistance of cutting tool bits ? What purpose does your fluid serve - coolant/lubricant ?

    "Friction Coefficient" is strictly defined only between solid surfaces, ie : viscosity is infinitely large.

    Are you interested in the erosion effect of the fluid on the solid ?

    If you give some context and explain what it is you want to figure out, that would help.
