Abstract:

Surface texture plays an important role during sliding. In this investigation, the tribological response of materials with varying hardness and crystal structure during sliding against a relatively harder material of different surface textures was studied. It was found that the coefficient of friction is controlled by the surface texture of the harder mating surfaces. Further, two kinds of frictional response, namely steady-state and stick–slip, were observed during sliding. In general, the response was dependent on material ...
