The occurrence of rubber abrasion is started with a crack that occurs when maximum stress exceeds the breaking stress. Investigation of the rubber friction using a blade indenter is presented numerically in this paper. The rubber analyzed was Filled Styrene Butadiene Rubber that is commonly used for tires. The analysis was performed to obtain the stress pattern and maximum stress location of the deformed rubber. Simulation results showed that the magnitude and location of the maximum stress were strongly influenced by the depth of indentation and contact surface roughness.
