The paper presents the construction of a coarse-grained model to investigate dry sliding friction of the body-centered-cubic Fe micron-scale system by smoothed particle hydrodynamics simulations and examines influences of the spring force on the characters of friction. The atoms Fe system is coarse-grained into the two different simple-cubic particle systems, one of 432000 and the other of 16000 particles. From the detection of stick-slip motion, friction coefficient, dependence of friction coefficient on isotropy or anisotropy of the spring force and externally applied normal load, we find that the coarse-grained model is a reasonable modeling process for the study of the friction of the Fe system, and the anisotropic behavior presents better friction of the system than the isotropic one.
