Abstract

Tribological tests are adopted to estimate the kinetic friction coefficient of the material of interest according to the ASTM standard. Typically, for the measurement process, several replicas as well as a post-processing data treatment are necessary to take into account the observed casual variability of the measurand. This paper describes a statistical approach aiming to highlight the running-in phase and the most significant time intervals during the steady-state for each test replica. A two-steps procedure based on the adoption of the bootstrap method allows the automatic detection of the running-in time interval and the outlier filtering of the steady-state. Experimental activity has been carried out by performing multiple tests through the ball-on-flat tribometer in order to verify the improvement allowed by the authors' proposal about the dry friction coefficient measurement in terms of both accuracy and repeatability.
