Four similar surfaces with different feel – a tactile study on adhesion, friction, Young’s modulus and thermal conductivity
2016 (English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Even surfaces that look the same and have the same topography have a different feel to them. How is this difference related to material properties? In this paper four surfaces (aluminosilicate glass, soda‑lime glass, polycarbonate and polyurethane) were evaluated by a test panel. The purpose was to study whether the panel could distinguish different material parameters, in particular the adhesion. Results showed that the test panel could sense differences in thermal conductivity, Young’s modulus and adhesion. The results also showed that the measured friction coefficients did not correspond to the test panels’ subjective opinion, unlike the perceived and measured adhesion force.
