Sheet and bulk metal forming are widely used manufacturing methods. The interaction between worktool and workpiece in such a process causes friction which has a remarkable impact on the expended energy of the process. Therefore the influence of friction is important. Friction can be split into shearing and ploughing [1]. Ploughing is the plastic deformation of a soft surface by a hard contact partner. Shear forces are only transferred in the real contact area where material contact occurs. The investigation of the contribution of both ploughing and shearing to the total friction resistance is done with the use of an elasto-plastic halfspace model. The multiscale character of surfaces demands a fine discretization, which results in numerical effort. While a finite element method takes into account both surface and bulk of the contact partners, the halfspace model only regards the contact surfaces and thereby consumes less computing capacity. In order to identify the friction resistance, two rough surfaces get into contact. After full application of the normal load, the surfaces are moved relatively to each other. New asperities of the contact surfaces get into contact and are plastically deformed. These deformations are used to estimate the ploughing effect in dependency on the relative displacement.
