A Digital Twin for Friction Prediction in Dynamic Rubber Applications with Surface Textures

Minimizing sliding friction of elastomer components by optimized surface texturing: With the help of data based methods (Tensor Rank Decomposition) an optimum dimple texture (depth, distance, diameter) can be identified to reduce friction for a given application. In the EU project Mouldtex (GA768705) we applied these textures in a Texturing During Moulding process, i.e. the molds surfaces were engraved with the negative texture.
