This report is a study of the sliding behaviors of a number of copper alloys and other metals at various velocities. The research was carried out using the pin-on-disk friction and wear machine used for the work in ARRADCOM technical Report ARLCB-TR-82018. The same three disk metals AISI 4340 steel, chromium electroplate, and tantalum and the same pin metals were also used. Previous experiments were at a sliding speed of 1.70 meters per second ms. In this work sliding speeds of 3.05 ms and 0.58 ms were added for most of the alloys sliding on steel.
