The study on friction of distributed rigid sliders on lubricated rubber flats, reported here, shows that the overall friction coefficient increases with larger inter-slider spacings but never exceeds that of a single slider. Also, the tractionability of sliders arranged in a linear array becomes greater when the array is oriented away from the traveling direction. These effects are governed by the interaction of the indentation strain fields and of the dynamic (or creep) deformation/recovery processes imposed on the rubber by individual sliders. The frictional performance of bilinear array of sliders is also discussed.
