Workshop: Fretting and Extreme Pressure

Workshop: Fretting and Extreme Pressure

The high frequency and short amplitudes in fretting wear make it particularly dangerous due to its multitude of effects on materials. Fatigue can occur in lower loaded contacts, at higher loads wear debris is generated and transformations occur in the material. This...
