CourseMarks Score®

8.6 / 10

CourseMarks Score® helps students to find the best classes. We aggregate 18 factors, including freshness, student feedback and content diversity.

Freshness Score

9.4 / 10
This course was last updated on 10/2021.

Course content can become outdated quite quickly. After analysing 71,530 courses, we found that the highest rated courses are updated every year. If a course has not been updated for more than 2 years, you should carefully evaluate the course before enrolling.

Student Feedback

We analyzed factors such as the rating (0.0/5) and the ratio between the number of reviews and the number of students, which is a great signal of student commitment.

New courses are hard to evaluate because there are no or just a few student ratings, but Student Feedback Score helps you find great courses even with fewer reviews.

Content Score

7.4 / 10
Video Score: 7.6 / 10
The course includes 34m video content. Courses with more videos usually have a higher average rating. We have found that the sweet spot is 16 hours of video, which is long enough to teach a topic comprehensively, but not overwhelming. Courses over 16 hours of video gets the maximum score.
The average video length is 3 hours 21 minutes of 306 Physics courses on Udemy.
Detail Score: 9.1 / 10

The top online course contains a detailed description of the course, what you will learn and also a detailed description about the instructor.

Description

Friction is a complex subject that we have broken up into multiple modules in this course. Understanding friction is critical in wide-ranging applications, from automotive and aerospace, to rock climbing and curling. In many cases we try to minimize friction (to improve engine performance, for example), but in other cases a high degree of friction is essential (in brake systems, for example). The concepts have been studied since antiquity, and we continue to invest effort and resources into understand and control friction today.
In this module we start by looking at the mechanisms of dry, rolling friction. We then look at tractive rolling and tractive friction, which are critical to getting a vehicle moving and stopping it without sliding. We then move on to rolling friction, which occurs once a wheel or bearing is finally in motion.
The relationship between surface texture (surface roughness), lubrication, and rolling friction is still being studied today, and we go into detail about how texture is (and isn’t) responsible for rolling friction. We show why “smooth” is generally better in instances of dry rolling, but how the relationship between texture and rolling friction can be far more complex in lubricated applications.
We encourage you to also view the modules on Dry Friction and Lubricated Friction for a more complete view of the subject matter.
This is Module 7 of the Surface Texture and Tribology Short Course. The full course is available on udemy, or you can select the individual course modules of interest to you. Enter “surface roughness texture tribology” in the udemy search bar to browse the full course and modules.

You will learn

✓ The mechanics of frictionless rolling
✓ The dynamics of tractive rolling and tractive friction
✓ The dynamics of rolling friction
✓ Why rolling friction is so much lower than sliding friction

Surface Metrology/Tribology
In 1994, Dr. Cohen established Michigan Metrology to help engineers and scientists solve problems related to “Squeaks, leaks, friction, wear, appearance, adhesion and other issues,” using 3D Surface MicroTexture Measurement and Analysis.
Dr. Cohen is a past Chairman of the STLE-Detroit section and has been active with the ASME B46.1 committee on surface texture since 1988, having served as Chair from 2005-2011. Dr. Cohen is also a Subject Matter Expert for the ISO surface metrology activities.
Dr. Cohen has an undergraduate degree in Physics from the University of Michigan, Dearborn, and graduate degrees in Physics and Optical Sciences from the University of Arizona. Early in his career, Dr. Cohen worked with IBM on optical disk drive development. He later joined WYKO Corporation as Product Manger and later became Vice President, leading the development of 3D surface texture metrology instrumentation.
Dr. Cohen has developed this class over the past 20 years having presented the material at numerous client locations as part of his training and consulting activities. Typically once a year the class is offered to a general audience in the Livonia, MI area.
