Abstract

Abstract Reciprocating and continuous sliding wear tests have been performed on a low-carbon steel under similar conditions of load, speed and nominal area of contact in order to compare the wear rates for the two sliding modes. It has been established that the pattern of wear is similar for continuous and reciprocating sliding but a higher wear rate is obtained during reciprocating sliding for both mild and severe wear; the rate of increase of wear rate with load for severe wear is also greater under reciprocating conditions. The differences in wear rate for continuous and reciprocating sliding can be explained in terms of the differing amounts of abrasion in the two processes by the loose wear debris.
