Abstract

In previous wear tests it was frequently found that there was no systematic analysis of the applicability of the results of the tests to practical systems. In the present paper an attempt was made to study the applicability of wear test results with the aid of a system analysis and similarity laws. The test conditions under which a good qualitative applicability of wear results can be expected were determined. For checking the applicability of wear test results, suitable material and surface studies were introduced. The considerations described with respect to the applicability of wear test results are summarized in a flow chart; this demonstrates how to perform the applicable wear tests.
