An all-in-one numerical methodology for fretting wear and fatigue life assessment
(Gruppo Italiano Frattura, 2016)
Many mechanical components such as, bearing housings, flexible couplings and spines or orthopedic devices are simultaneously subjected to a fretting wear and fatigue damage. For this reason, the combined study on a single ...
Surface integrity of additive manufacturing parts: a comparison between optical topography measuring techniques
(Elsevier B.V., 2020)
Additive Manufacturing (AM) presents significant industry-specific advantages allowing the creation of complex geometries and internal features that cannot be produced using conventional manufacturing processes. However, ...
Development of a Modular Fretting Wear and Fretting Fatigue Tribometer for Thin Steel Wires: Design Concept and Preliminary Analysis of the Effect of Crossing Angle on Tangential Force
(MDPI AG, 2019)
This work presents the design of a modular ad-hoc fretting fatigue and fretting wear tribotester for thin steel wires. The working principles of the diffrent modules are described, such as the displacement and contact ...
On the Role of a ZDDP in the Tribological Performance of Femtosecond Laser-Induced Periodic Surface Structures on Titanium Alloy against Different Counterbody Materials
Laser-induced periodic surface structures (LIPSS, ripples) with ~500–700 nm period were produced on titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V) surfaces upon scan processing in air by a Ti:sapphire femtosecond laser. The tribological ...
On the Role of Contact and System Stiffness in the Measurement of Principal Variables in Fretting Wear Testing
(MDPI AG, 2020)
In this work, the role of the contact stiffness in the measurement of principal variables in fretting wear tests is assessed. Several fretting wear tribometers found in the literature, including one developed by the authors, ...
Towards the automation of the die spotting process: Contact blue pattern decryption
(Elsevier Ltd., 2020)
Automotive die spotting is one of the most complex and least standardized processes in the tool making process. A spotting expert identifies local contact areas through a blue-paste pattern and the die/sheet contact is ...
