Abstract

The frictional coefficient μ between poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) rubber and glass plate with PDMS lubricant is measured for various thickness of rubber sample. The friction coefficient of thick sample is shown to be an order of magnitude larger than that of thin sample. The phenomenon is interpreted as the transition from the hydrodynamic lubrication to the boundary lubrication.
