A Relation between Laboratory and Full-Scale Testing of Polyester/Polyester Composites under Static and Dynamic Load
The tribological behaviour of a polymer composite is compared during small-scale and large-scale sliding tests and it is observed that test results strongly depend on the fibre orientation and test configuration. Different wear mechanisms are evaluated by optical microscopy and finite element modelling in relation to a real application of polyester/polyester discs as bearing elements.
