Abstract : To satisfy future Air Force requirements, the present knowledge on the sliding friction and wear was reviewed and found to be inadequate. More experimental data with better controlled environmental conditions are needed. To fulfill this need, a versatile sliding friction apparatus has been designed, constructed, and tested. As the initial phase of the work, friction between copper specimens were investigated. (Author)
