Abstract

Microscopic wear mechanism during repeated sliding was invstigated by in-situ observation with a newly developed SEM-tribosystem. Microscopic wear mode transition during repeated sliding progressed from cutting to wedge to shear-tongue and to ploughing. The transition between wear modes coincided with the change in the degree of penetration, Dpn, which was introduced as an index to describe the severity of microscopic contact. In addition, the relationship between the number of sliding cycles, N, and the wear coefficient, K, was explained by using the degree of penetration, Dpn.
