Abstract:

A study of the worn out parts of machines and mechanisms produces a general conclusion regarding the noticeable changes in the original structure and properties of the metal in direct proximity to the friction surface. This article is an attempt to describe the changes which unfold in the surface layers of titanium during friction and to compare these changes with a similar picture observed in other materials.
