Katona [22] proposed a friction-contact interface element without stiffness coefficients to simulate the sliding friction and opening and closing processes between two contact surfaces.
The total efficiency of an oil pump is the product of two items: its mechanical efficiency (i.e., sliding friction) and volumetric (pumping) efficiency.
But the one largest force present when peak force is reached is sliding friction and it stays constant with speed.
