Friction Coefficient
Coefficient of Friction

What is a Friction Coefficient? Friction is a force resisting relative motion and may occur at the interface between the bodies, but may also occur within the bodies. The concept of friction coefficient was first […]

Fatigue Surface Crack
Rolling Contact Fatigue

Rolling-contact fatigue (RCF) is defined as a failure or material removal driven by crack propagation caused by the near-surface alternating stress field.  It is typically considered that if a bearing is properly mounted, aligned, lubricated, […]

Fatigue Wear
Fatigue Wear

Fatigue wear is a type of wear where a number of cycles is needed to generate debris. The fatigue process in metals may induce the generation of surface and subsurface cracks, which after a critical […]

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) […]

Abrasive Wear

Abrasive wear occurs when a hard surface or hard particles pass over a soft surface, causing loss of material [1]. However, the abrasive grooves can be found on the wear tracks of the sliding friction […]

Adhesive Wear

Adhesive wear occurs when two solids are in a sliding contact and the atomic bonding forces occurring between the materials on the interface are stronger than the strength of the surrounding area in either of […]
