The Sliding Pair's Reliability Calculation. General Approach
This paper shows the possibilities of sliding pair’s calculation evaluation with the use of the generalized wear model where the wear rate v is a function of friction parameters p, v and complex constants K and x. It also estimates the inaccuracy (uncertainty) scale of methods making up the reliability prediction algorithm, especially in connection with the choice of: the method of transformation of random arguments distribution into the function distribution of the kinematic pairs stability, pseudorandom-number generators, contact stress characteristics.
