AbstractThe crushing friction apparatus at Memorial University has been modified to allow for visual documentation of the crushing process by viewing through the specimen holder and ice sample. Analysis of the video records and test data indicated that at least 50% of the energy dissipated during the process of indentation was consumed by pressure melting and heat generation through the rapid viscous flow of the liquid.
