The purpose of this work is to present to design engineers analytical design procedures for wear. For this purpose, the work has been divided into three main sections. The first section contains a short summary of the models used as a basis for the design procedures. The second section contains the design procedures and examples of their use. The third section contains a selection of tables and figures which are germane to the design procedures. This section contains a short summary of expressions for stress, values of Young’s modulus and Poisson’s ratio for the more common materials, and other tables, in addition to the main table of zero wear factors for a large number of combinations of materials and lubricants.
