Rolling Friction Models

Rolling friction is the resistive force that slows down the motion of a rolling object. 

Rotational resistance and energy loss during rotation is significant, most simulations should include a Rolling Friction component to account for the materials resistance to rolling. Only one rolling friction model can be added per simulation. Rolling friction models are only applicable to Multi-Sphere models for Polyhedral models Spinning Friction should be added instead.

The following Rolling Friction Models are available in EDEM:
