Wear in tribological contacts results in generation of wear particles of various sizes and shapes and these particles impact the performance of the mechanical devices. These particles may create additional mechanical damage or act as […]

The importance of wear losses leads to considerable effort in establishing theories and predictive models of wear. Meng and Ludema [1] have identified 182 equations for different types of wear. Among them were empirical relations, […]

A script that solves the linear complementarity problem associated with the Boussinesq contact mechanics problem h = K*p+g, h’*p=0, h,p >=0, where the unknown h is the gap between two elastic (half-space) bodies and the unknown […]

Matlab routines solving a linear complementarity problem appearing in lubrication with cavitation. Can also be found at the file exchange at MATLAB central.

There is a number of online tribology related calculators available on tibonet and they are listed in this table. If you would like to add a calculator, please contact us.

This online calculator uses Moes fit for the central film thickness calculation for a line contact. Corresponding equations can be found in reference [1]. References [1] https://www.utwente.nl/en/et/ms3/research-chairs/stt/research/publications/phd-theses/Thesis_Faraon.pdf

See the description of Brinell Hardness test below. The Brinell Hardness Number (BHN) is calculated as follows: . Schematic diagram of the test is shown below: For further information see [1,2] References [1] http://www.engineersedge.com/manufacturing/brinell_hardness_test_equation_13173.htm [2] […]

See the description of the Vickers Hardness test below. The Vickers Hardness test is used to characterize hardness of various solid materials. A diamond pyramid is pressed against the solid and the hardness is calculated […]
