Since the coulomb friction model is problematic as regards both the analysis and simulation of a system behavior, a combination of the viscous friction model and the coulomb friction model could be advantageous.
Tightening a bolt or a nut with a wrench exemplifies Coulomb friction.
A very brief period, dt, during which Coulomb friction changes from a static to dynamic friction condition, static friction prevails.
Platen forces and contact pressure distributions have been obtained for different Coulomb friction values (0 < [mu] < 0,3).
We assume that the friction on the rake face satisfies a Coulomb friction model; therefore, the average friction coefficient on the rake face [[mu].
