Abstract:

Previous studies on the friction and wear properties of jet fuels have been extended to metallurgies other than steel and to other kinds of wear, both abrasive and scuffing. Corrosive wear is found with most metals, even those that are nominally corrosion resistant, and can be controlled by using surface- active additives. Abrasive wear is triggered by corrosive wear and can be controlled indirectly by eliminating corrosive wear or indirectly by polar additives. Unlike corrosive wear, scuffing is most severe in dry inert atmospheres. Antiwear additives are usually also antiscuff agents.
