Dynamic tool-ply friction for a thermoplastic viscous textile composite has been measured using a commercial rotational rheometer as a function of rate, temperature and normal pressure. Results of this novel experimental technique have enabled a general empirical equation to be determined relating the dynamic friction force to experimental conditions. The method has been corroborated using an alternative experimental technique. Advantages of using the rheometer include significantly faster production of data and more precise measurement of experimental conditions.
