Abstract

This paper presents and discusses an experimental method of friction during the current flow in sliding zone with lubrication. There is also showed typical friction changes of several parameters depending on a load and DC voltage. It allows to observe positive and negative results of the friction. A low level of electrical energy used in friction zone can improve the work conditions. When power of the electric energy is exceeded it leads to the micro-welding, especially during the high load. On the other hand we notice a new possibility of using electric current to friction force steering.
