An experimental study is performed on micro textured surfaces in order to better understand how to predict the changes in friction due to surface micro texturing. Surface testing shows that the effect of each texturing parameter on the Stribeck curve is dependant on the particular lubrication regime. By systematically changing the surface texturing parameters, the effects of surface texturing on the Stribeck curve are shown to be highly predictable. Scaling arguments must be developed to better understand and quantify the mechanisms of reduced friction.
