Adhesive Wear Rate Between Two Metals
Purpose of calculation:
Determine the adhesive wear rate of two metals.
This calculation is featured as a case study.
1. Wear Coefficients - Metals Section IV of 10, E. Rabinowicz.
2. Fundamentals of Machine Component design, Juvinall
Check against calculation in Ref. 2
Compatibility of Various Metal combinations (increasing compatibility increasing tendency to weld and increasing wear rate)
Wear Coefficient Lower Limit (of softer material)
Estimated Wear Coefficient (set between limits or calculate average)
Surface Hardness (note. Brinell, Vickers and Knopp hardness values are in kg/mm²)
Sliding Distance (often calculated as a velocity x time)
