Influence of the structure of babbitt on the stress-strain state in the zone of friction contact

  • Published:
Materials Science Aims and scope


The methods of mathematical simulation are used to study the process of contact friction interaction for homogeneous lead and heterogeneous intact or run-in B16 babbitt. It is shown that the hard and soft structural components of the run-in babbitt strongly decrease the size of the zones of plastic deformation in the material, improve its wear resistance, and promote the increase in the operating reliability and service life of plain bearings.
