Surface analysis problems in tribology

  • Karl -Heinz Habig


Tribology includes the fields of friction, wear and lubrication. First, a systems analysis of tribological processes is presented. Friction and wear depend on a great number of influencing quantities. Among them the surface properties of the stressed materials are very important. Their chemical composition can change during tribological operation by adhesive and tribochemical wear processes. This is demonstrated by different examples. Finally, the demands of tribology for surface analysis methods are discussed.
