This refers to emulating the friction in hydraulic valves.The friction curve of static,colomb,viscous friction is quite well known. But what iam stuck up is how do i emulate the friction curve either by simulation or by making some modifications in the valve...

RE: Friction

beeing a non-english native your use of emulates pussles m. Emulate emans (according to my dictionary) "to compete" with or "to do better than". I therefor dont get what you are askign.

Best Regards
