High-temperature tribology – Evaluation of friction and wear

More and more applications nowadays operates at high temperatures and this arises also the important challenges in terms of tribological properties at these severe conditions. Within the scope of this work, the student will use Load-Scanner tribometer device, designed for testing the tribological properties of materials up to 800 °C. The work will include performing the tests, where load (contact pressure) and number of cycles will be changed at different temperatures in order to obtain general picture of the system, especially in terms at which conditions the significant wear of materials is obtained and how it can be evaluated (by measuring the wear volume or with gravimetric technique).
