A phenomenological description for tribocorrosion is developed by including electrochemical corrosion aspects into a third body approach. The developed third body approach stresses the relevance of electrochemical phenomena such as dissolution or formation of stable oxides for the overall wear process. Examples of electrochemical control of wear in engineering and laboratory systems are presented and discussed.
