An investigation was conducted into the nature of surface damage which resulted from high speed sliding contacts. The first portion of the program consisted of an analytical temperature solution for transient case for two bodies in sliding contact. In exploratory studies of high speed, short-time contacts, the following results were obtained 1 gold, bronze, and chrome plate gave the least surface damage of the materials tested which could be considered for high temperature applications, and 2 considerable difference was noted in the damage which resulted in short-time contact at high speed in contrast to that which would be expected from longer sliding times. In certain cases the damage was more severe tool steel and with others, less severe titanium carbide, 440C stainless. Author
