Tests were conducted on samples of black (non-galvanized) steel and aluminum to study sources of variation in the coefficient of friction of wheat on metal. The factors analyzed were type of metal, grain pressure and number of trials. The coefficient of friction varied with pressure and type of metal and decreased with repeated sliding contact with grain.
