Friction Wear Review

Friction wear is defined as the progressive damage resulting in material loss due to relative contact between adjacent working parts. Although some wear is to be expected during normal operation of equipment, excessive friction causes premature wear, and this creates significant economic costs due to equipment failure, cost for replacement parts, and downtime. 

Friction and wear also generate heat, which represents wasted energy that is not recoverable. In other words, wear is also responsible for overall loss in system efficiency.
