WEAR KINETICS OF RAIL AND WHEEL STEELS IN THE DRY FRICTION CONDITION

Wear data, wear surfaces and the particles obtained in unlubricated rolling experiments were analyzed. It is observed that wear is not directly proportional to the number of cycles. Wear particle formation appears to be due to crack generation and propagation in the highly stressed surface layers of the materials. A theoretical analysis is given to predict wear rate and the nature of the wear process. This paper presents the results and analysis of wear in dry rolling contact simulating the interaction of steel rails and wheels.
