Microscopy and the Study of Wear
As soon as man began to use tools, wear became a problem. The history of metallurgy, or man’s continuing quest for tougher and harder materials, can be seen to have been motivated by the desire to have tools, especially if weapons may be categorized as tools, that will hold a sharp edge. To more peaceful ends, farmers once embedded sharp stones in wooden plow faces to increase their useful life. It has only been in the past 50 years, however, that man has recognized the economic impact of wear prevention and done more than just take wear for granted.
