METHODOLOGY OF CARRYING RESEARCHES OF KINEMATIC PAIR OF PIVIOTING FRICTION
The paper presents the program and methodology of carrying out research on kinematic pair with pivoting friction. There was examined a node with pivoting friction in bearing concentrated connection flat surface-spherical bowl. During the research there were determined two types of characteristics – characteristic of friction moment as a function of load and experimentally designated characteristic of wear of the frictional kinematic pair. Both of the assigned characteristics are compared.
