The design of frictional systems is a challenging task because of the quan-tity of occurring physical effects and their interactions. During the design process it is often not transparent how changes of specific characteristics affect the behaviour of the system. As a result, there are often cost and time intensive iterations. In order to handle this complexity during the system’s design, a concept is introduced representing interactions between single ef-fects and influencing characteristics. Basic approach is to describe the behav-iour of a physical system by different elementary machines representing the different phenomena which can be observed from the working structure. Structure and usage of the model are highlighted using a tribological system as an example.
