Abstract

Abstract The specific wear rates of fibrous polymer composites in water and oil lubricants were investigated by means of tribological data, microscopy, and phenomenological modeling. The wear rate is a function of mechanical, tribological, and material parameters, and a theoretical expression of wear rate has been derived from the concepts of crack propagation, damage accumulation, and classical mechanics. The observed wear rate data as a function of sliding velocity or normal load appear to be explainable using the proposed wear equation.
