Friction and Wear Behavior of Glasses and Ceramics

  • Donald H. Buckley
Part of the Materials Science Research book series (MSR, volume 7)


There are certain fundamental characteristics of metals, carbons, polymers, glasses and ceramics which these widely different material classes have in common with respect to adhesion, friction and wear. Their surface topography is generally irregular, they contain surface and bulk defects, adhere in the clean state to themselves or other materials and are extremely sensitive to surface contaminants with respect to adhesion, friction and wear.
