### Search help

• Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
• You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
• cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
• cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
• cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
• [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
• [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

# Question about the physic materials in UE4

 0 I have several questions regards the physics properties in a physics-material: Friction Friction combine Restitution I know that a friction of zero is like super glue where you cannot move at all, 100% energy lost in the tangential normal direction and one is like ice without any energy lost in the tangential normal direction too (Is that right?) I know that restitution determines the bounciness of a body - zero means no bouncy at all, one means 100% bouncy without any energy lost in the normals direction (Is that right?) I assume that friction combine, do what the names says... how the final friction value are calculated in a collision response for two rigid bodies. What i dont know, how does UE4 calculates the "Final" Restitution Value (is it the maximum, the minimum or some average? What friction values must i set for a static and a dynamic body, so that the dynamic do bounce 100% in a physical matter, without any energy lost and with a reflected velocity, but never ever slides along the static body? Is there a way i can have multiple physical materials and switch based on a "On Overlap Actor" collision, so that i can have physical materials for different actors?

Nope, friction = 0, is like ice.

With restitution, the energy is first converted to what I think is called elastic potential, where the objects squish together, and then after that it is converted back into kinetic energy. The coefficient of restitution determines how much kinetic energy is lost to sound or whatever, and then that remaining energy is split in half between the two objects (unless one is static, in which case the mobile one gets all the remaining energy). add new comment (comments are locked) 10|2000 characters needed characters left ▼ Viewable by all users
