A number of experiments were conducted on the metallic friction in reciprocating sliding with a pendulum. It was shown that the reciprocating sliding gives quite different results from those of single‐traverse or unidirectional repeated sliding, which were emphasized in both the coefficient of friction and the electric contact resistance, surface damage due to sliding, and the low friction phenomenon.
