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 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, ...
A coupled 3D wear and fatigue numerical procedure: Application to fretting problems in ultra-high strength steel wires
(Elsevier Ltd., 2021)
This work presents a coupled 3D wear and fatigue numerical procedure for fretting problems in ultra-high strength steel wires that combines Archard’s wear equation with the Smith–Watson–Topper parameter to predict crack ...
