Wear Problems of Slide-Friction Pair
A number of different mechanisms and devices may involve sliding-friction surfaces. The issues of service life and its prediction for the details of such surfaces have always been of particular importance. The article determines the most suitable wear calculation model that allows considering the set of parameters necessary for calculating slide-friction pair. The offered model is based on the application of the theories of several branches of sciences. Since the wear process is variable and many-sided, it is influenced by numerous different parameters, for example, surface geometry (roughness, waviness, form deviation, etc.), physical and mechanical conditions of the upper layer, material components, wear regime, wear temperature, etc.
