Adhesion and wear in miniature plastic bearings
- Zygmunt Rymuza
Some results of wear investigations in steel-polymer journal bearings having diameters in the range 1–5 mm are discussed. The discussion concerns correlations between some adhesion effects and the wear observed. It relates to the adhesive bonding force between rubbing surfaces, to the physical properties of the transferred film and the wear particles size, being the effect of the adhesive interactions between rubbing materials in the friction region. The model of these interactions is theoretically studied and results are compared with the wear rates observed. The correlations found between the effects of adhesive interactions and the wear rates are presented. They support the hypothesis that adhesion plays a dominant role in the wear process in the bearings discussed.
