The high stress wear behavior of steels is dependent on a number of experimental factors, such as load, sliding distance, speed, abrasive size, and so forth. With the aid of computer-based regression analysis, this study investigates the role of each experimental variable on wear rate. Correlations are formed between the predicted and experimentally observed values.
