Friction in materials plays an essential role in manufacturing, new product development, quality and product marketability. The smaller the frictional forces, the smoother the fabric surface is, which makes a softer and higher quality material. Research has shown that characterization of the friction of viscoelastic materials, such as fiber, textiles, etc., is complex and requires in-depth calculation. Seshadri Ramkumar, Ph.D. of The Institute of Environmental and Human Health at Texas Tech University, and his associates have developed a solution for the complexity of friction with a simple friction factor software. The software automatically calculates the friction factor and is compatible with Windows based operating systems such as Windows 98, 2000, ME and XP. The software has Microsoft Access database for storing and retrieving results..
