Sk(Core height) | Area Roughness Parameters

Sk(Core height)

Sk(Core height) is calculated as the difference of heights at the areal material ratio values 0% and 100% on the equivalent line; specifically, it is a value obtained by subtracting the minimum height from the maximum height of the core surface.

Sk(Core height)

Sk represents the height of the core surface, Smr1 represents the areal material ratio that divides the reduced peaks from the core surface, and Smr2 represents the areal material ratio that divides the reduced valleys from the core surface.

The reduced peaks are the areas that are removed by initial abrasion. Spk represents the average height of the reduced peaks.

The reduced valleys are the areas that hold liquid applied on the surface in order to improve lubricity. Svk represents the average depth of the reduced valleys.
