An abrasive wear mechanism, based on microscopic observations of abrasive wear processes in the scanning electron microscopic was analyzed and a wear mode diagram was developed in order to estimate macroscopic wear volume (or the wear resistance) quantitatively. Macroscopic abrasive wear tests on virgin surfaces were carried out for nine kinds of metals under unlubricated or lubricated condition in order to confirm the validity of the introduced wear equation.
