the action of sand paper over a metal surface. The total volume of wear particles displaced due to abrasive wear per unit distance of travel is given by; V = 2 W Cot / P o , where W = normal applied load, = ½ angle of the conical hard asperity (assumed shape of asperity) as shown in Fig.9, P o = yield pressure of the softer material. Note that as increases V decreases. The effect of asperity shape on the form of abrasive wear is shown in Fig.10. W Fig.9

Fatigue Wear 3.1 Rolling contact: During rolling the opposing surfaces are separated by a lubricant film as in anti- friction bearings. The surfaces experience large stresses transmitted through the lubricant film. The nature and magnitude of these stresses can be found using the Hertezian equations. These

These asperities experience a sufficient number of contacts and deformations to produce a fatigue fracture of the asperities. 4. Corrosive wear: When rubbing takes place in a corrosive environment, gaseous or liquid, then surface reactions take place and reaction products (oxides) are found on one or both surfaces. These reaction products (oxides) are poorly adhere to the surfaces, and further rubbing causes their removal. Thus corrosive wear requires both corrosion and rubbing. To protect surfaces from corrosive wear a lubricant is introduced. However sometimes water is dissolved in oil, which invokes corrosive wear. Corrosion is
