Abstract

Abstract An analytical approach is proposed to interpret the results of lubricity tests carried out in a four-ball machine. The results are used to evaluate both the total energy of frictional wear processes and the activation energy for partial processes. A correlation is found between the generally accepted indices of lubricity and the activation energy.
