Paper Title:
Design and Fabrication of the First Tribometer in Pakistan
  Abstract

Tribometer is an instrument that offers precise and repeatable wear/friction measurement of a surface. The coefficient of friction is a dimensionless scalar value which describes the ratio of the force of friction between two bodies. It is an empirical measurement; it has to be measured experimentally, and cannot be found through calculations. This tribometer measures coefficient of friction between any two materials in dry test scenario using flat bed approach; moreover it measures both kinetic and dynamic coefficient of friction. As emphasized in the title it is first of its kind being fabricated in Pakistan, which is a huge achievement considering the fact that not much research work is being done in this field in Pakistan. This tribometer is designed to prioritize accuracy and manufacturing cost.
