Appel d’offre Tribomètre
Pour plus d’information: AO 2014-10
Scope of the bid : Purchase of a tribometer
For more information : AO 2014-10
Contact : Jeanne-Marie Granger (email@example.com)
Closing date: 15/11/2014
Main characteristics :
The apparatus should be able to:
- Apply a normal force onto a sample.
- Perform friction force, coefficient of friction measurements.
- Pin-on-disc/ball-on disc configuration.
- Force range should be between 1 to 30 N.
- The wish displacement is linear in order to adapt to most of the substrates but a rotative displacement could be adapted on the device.
- Coefficient of friction should be visualised in real time.
- Device should fullfill ASTM G 99.
- Device should be versatile in order to test several samples with different geometries.
- Sample holder should be adapted to several geometries.
- Wear measurements could be performed
- It could be possible to coat the pin/balls in order to measure the coefficient of friction between the two same coatings.
- Others configurations could be adapted on the device: planar contact, cross cylinder…
- Rotational displacement
- Coefficient of friction could be measured with oil lubricant
