Abstract: Abstract The coefficient of dynamic friction is often the controlling factor for solids conveying, pressure generation, and thermal decomposition of a resin in the feed section of a single‐screw plasticating extruder. The coefficients of friction are, however, very poorly understood, and the interpretation of the measurements are complicated by the dissipation of frictional energy at the sliding interface. A new instrument was recently built to help understand dynamic friction, and a numerical technique was d…
