Wear Particles

The wear process results in generation of debris, or particles, of various size, shape, color distributions and chemical composition[1, 2, 3]. These distributions are dependent on normal load, sliding speed, environment and many other parameters[4]. […]

Corrosive Wear
Corrosive Wear

Corrosive wear occurs when the component operates in a corrosive media, liquid or gas [1, 2]. In this type of wear, the tribochemical reaction between corrosive agent and the bulk material generates a reaction (protective) […]

Superlubricity

Superlubricity is a recently invented term in tribology, which is generally defined as the state, at which the friction coefficient is low. The definition of “low” is not quite clear, but it can be assumed […]
