Abstract:The main obstacle to calculate the ‘feel’ of a product from its surface properties is the ill-defined surface topography that is encountered after the most surface finishing processes. In this work this obstacle was avoided by producing well-defined surface topographies by laser texturing. The friction of textures having surface features with varying radii and spacings was investigated by measuring friction against the fingerpad. Within the range of conditions tested the coefficient of friction decreased with increasing normal load. The relation between the surface texture parameters and the coefficient of friction is influenced by the scale-dependent elastic behaviour of the skin top layer.
