Influence of deep-cryogenic treatment on wear resistance of vacuum heat-treated HSS
Abstract In this paper we compare the wear behaviour of a vacuum heat-treated ESR AISI M2 high-speed steel and the same steel that was vacuum heat treated in conjunction with a deep-cryogenicExpand

The Effect of Wetting and Surface Energy on the Friction and Slip in Oil-Lubricated Contacts
This work shows the influence of solid–liquid interactions between engineering surfaces (steel and several types of DLC coatings) and lubricating oil (polyalphaolefin, PAO) on the coefficient ofExpand

The Stribeck curve and lubrication design for non-fully wetted surfaces
Abstract Tailoring the properties of tribological interfaces is difficult, but it can be a very efficient way to reduce wear and friction and so increase service life – providing it can be doneExpand

The correlation between the surface energy, the contact angle and the spreading parameter, and their relevance for the wetting behaviour of DLC with lubricating oils
Abstract In this study we investigate the correlation between the wetting, the contact angle, the spreading, the surface energy and the surface tension for five types of DLC coatings (doped,Expand

The wetting of steel, DLC coatings, ceramics and polymers with oils and water: The importance and correlations of surface energy, surface tension, contact angle and spreading
Abstract The importance of wetting is becoming increasingly obvious and its control is inevitable in many engineering applications, including tribology and interface nanotechnology. However, theExpand

Adsorption mechanisms for fatty acids on DLC and steel studied by AFM and tribological experiments
Abstract Fatty acids are known to affect the friction and wear of steel contacts via adsorption onto the surface, which is one of the fundamental boundary-lubrication mechanisms. The understanding ofExpand

Differences in the tribological mechanisms when using non-doped, metal-doped (Ti, WC), and non-metal-doped (Si) diamond-like carbon against steel under boundary lubrication, with and without oil
In this paper, we report on the tribological performance and mechanisms of the boundary-lubricated contacts of steel against diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings, i.e., steel/DLC, using the sameExpand

Wear Behavior of Deep-Cryogenic Treated High-Speed Steels at Different Loads
Tools for the cold-working applications are typically made from the high-speed steels. However, due to wear and plastic deformation their performance in several applications is not adequate andExpand

Mechanisms and improvements in the friction and wear behavior using MoS2 nanotubes as potential oil additives
Abstract Several types of nanoparticles have been experimentally investigated as possible lubrication agents and the results suggest that this is a promising idea. However, so far, MoS 2 nanotubesExpand
