Abstract Influence of boundary layers on wear transition from mild to severe conditions in sliding lubricated contacts is experimentally studied. A servohydraulic controlled ball-on-disc tribometer is used. During running, additives in lubricants form boundary layers, which influence the lubrication positively in mixed and boundary lubricated contacts. However, it is not clear if and to what extent boundary layers are formed during the initial critical running-in of a contact. The possibilities… CONTINUE READING
