Frictional Coefficient for Glass

  1. Dec 2, 2015 #1
    Hi All!

    I have an assignment from University that involves finite element analysis of a glass lifting body using Catia. Problem is in order to set the value for loading correctly, I need the frictional coefficient for glass when in contact with rubber.

    I tried looking online and couldn't get anywhere with it. Different sites give different values, and I'm not confident about either of them.
    I was hoping to find some help here. Please let me know soon if possible as the assignment is due in 2 days.

    Thanks a lot everyone!

    Depends on the glass, depends on the rubber, depends on humidity.
