In this work, a multiscale homogenization approach is introduced to provide friction features between rubber and rough contact partners. Different length scales of the rough surface are considered by using a decomposition of the height difference correlation (HDCF) or the power spectral density function (PSDF) in several sinusoidal waves to accumulate the micro‐ and mesoscopic friction into a macroscopic friction coefficient. By using the finite element method (FEM), the sensitivity of the influencing factors for instance slip velocity and contact pressure may be investigated for rigid and flexible surfaces in the two‐ and the three‐dimensional case.
