Surface Finish/Friction/Wear Short Course
April 30–May 1, 2014
Livonia, Michigan (USA)
On April 30 and May 1, 2014, Don Cohen, PhD, one of the country’s foremost experts in surface roughness and its effects, will be leading a two-day short course on surface finish, friction, wear and texture. The workshop will be help in Livonia,
Michigan, with topics including:
• Roughness, waviness and form
• Instruments for measuring texture
• Filtering surface texture measurements
• Surface texture parameters
• Surface energy
• Data analysis
• Specifying surface texture.
This workshop is designed for scientists, engineers and technicians working in the fields of
automotive, aerospace, materials, polymers, and others.

About the Instructor
In 1994, Dr. Cohen established Michigan Metrology to help engineers and scientists solve
problems related to “Squeaks, leaks, friction, wear, appearance, adhesion and other issues,”
using 3D Surface MicroTexture Measurement and Analysis.
Prior to forming Michigan Metrology, Dr. Cohen was V.P. of Engineering at WYKO Corporation
(now part of Bruker Corporation), developing surface metrology instrumentation. He served as
Vice Chairman/Chairman of the ANSI/ASME B46.1 Surface Texture Standards committee from
2000-2011 and is past Chairman of the STLE-Detroit section. He holds a B.S. / M.S. in Physics
and a Ph.D. in Optical Sciences.
