Progress in wear prevention can be aided by a better understanding of the mechanisms of surface failure. Changes in topography, chemical nature and physical properties of surfaces subjected to sliding, rolling, abrasion, corrosion, deformation and repeated stressing have been studied. Optical and electron microscopy and electron probe micro-analysis have been used to obtain information for the elucidation of failure mechanisms and their controlling factors. The paper reviews some of this work which has been carried out in recent years in NEL mainly from the technological point of view.
