    • An ad-hoc fretting wear tribotester design for thin steel wires 

      Llavori Osa, Iñigo; Zabala Eguren, Alaitz; Tato Vega, Wilson; Aginagalde, Andrea; Gómez Rodríguez, Xabier (EDP Sciences, 2018)
      Steel wire ropes experience fretting wear damage when the rope runs over a sheave promoting an oscillatory motion between the wires. Consequently, wear scars appear between the contacting wires leading to an ...
    • The use of areal surface topography characterisation in relation to fatigue performance 

      Zabala Eguren, Alaitz; Llavori Osa, Iñigo; Tato Vega, Wilson; Aginagalde, Andrea; Gómez Rodríguez, Xabier (EDP Sciences, 2018)
      Although the effect of surface topography on fatigue life is widely accepted, the underlying role of surface roughness from first principles is still poorly understood. Currently approaches which consider the ...
