This paper deals with the development of a dimensionless empirical formula for calculating the coefficient of friction in sliding-rolling steel on steel contacts under different operating conditions in the thermal regime. The effect of lubrication, surface roughness, and surface coating on friction are considered. The formula shows excellent correlation with the experimental tests conducted by many investigators and provides a unified relationship for all the published data.
