DescriptionGenerally, the introduction of water and ethanol increased the friction coefficient for ovendry samples but decreased the coeffecient when the samples were saturated. Octanoic acid decreased the coefficient when samples were wet. In the entire experiment, coefficients ranged from 0.14 to 0.78.
