The plasticity index has often been invoked as an indicator of the most likely condition for scuffing of metals. The particular condition for initiating scuffing was thought to be 2% plastic strain in contacting asperities, which would lead to adhesion between asperities. E~eriments were done to validate the hypothesis using low alloy steels and stainless… CONTINUE READING
