Although, it seems that the concepts of static friction, sliding friction and rolling friction are common knowledges, their real sources are ironically not so clear. Inappropriate descriptions of them may have hampered the theoretical analyses and calculations of the frictions and deterred their applications in real world. In this paper, we are proposing a new method to model the static friction, sliding friction and rolling friction by three mechanical elements: spring, translatory damper and rotary damper respectively. It is shown that proper descriptions of the frictions, e.g. rolling friction, can help in correcting discrepancies in previous research works.
