We perform large-scale molecular dynamics simulations on diamond-like carbon to study wear mechanism and law at the nanoscale. Our simulations show that material loss during sliding varies linearly with normal load and sliding distance, consistent with Archard's law. Our simulations also show that the number of chemical bonds across the contact interface during sliding correlates well with friction force, but not with material loss, indicating that friction and wear follow different mechanisms… CONTINUE READING
