Abstract : This interdisciplinary research was designed to provide complementary information on materials subjected to lubricated and unlubricated sliding contact. With the aid of changes in test environment, surface activation, ion implantation, electron microscopy, diffraction analysis, surface analysis (Auger and laser Raman), and fracture mechanics, basic mechanisms of wear are being related to plastic flow, stress intensity and surface chemistry. The three main thrusts have been lubricated sliding, unlubricated sliding and fracture considerations
