Abstract:

This third progress report describes the work done by the MIT - Wear Research Group on fundamentals of wear by delamination. Such topics as the mechanics of subsurface deformation, crack nucleation, crack propagation, sliding velocity, combined fatigue and wear, the effect of microstructure, the effect of surface roughness and integrity and chemical effects on wear are examined.
