Regularities of evolution of surface structures in friction at high load

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Studies of evolution of microstructure at friction of austenite and ferrite materials indicate that friction is accompanied by seizure of contact surfaces producing a fragmented layer (20-40 μ thick). Plastic flow of this layer determines the tribological behavior of a material.
