The design, development, and application of a pin-on-disk tribometer for the measurement of friction and friction-induced vibration is described. Careful isolation techniques eliminated many of the errors in measurement which are associated with vibration arising from the apparatus or the surroundings. The use of acceleration, velocity, and displacement transducers in association with a one-cycle sequence triggering circuit and other electronic devices permitted the accurate measurement of kinetic friction forces in the presence of friction-induced vibration.
