Experience with wet multiple disc friction devices has shown that observed friction levels are substantially higher than those predicted by theoretical models that successfully predict dynamic friction coefficients in journal bearings. Recent experimental results reported by Granick at the molecular level provide a reasonable explanation for this divergence.
