Stack, M.M. and Mathew, M.T. (2004) Some comments on micro-abrasion interactions for pure metals in bio-oils. Journal of Synthetic Lubrication, 21 (2). pp. 105-118. ISSN 0265-6582

An attempt has been made to study the effect of bio-oils on the two- and three-body abrasion process of pure metals and steel. The equipment used was a micro-abrasion tester (TE-66, Phoenix Tribology (Plint)). The materials considered were mild steel, copper, and aluminium, being the most usable and basic materials for industrial applications such as bearings and gear assemblies. The results were used to identify transitions between wear regimes as a function of sliding speed and load. The effect on the abrasion process in the presence of various lubricant oils was also assessed. The mechanisms of abrasion with and without particles were characterised.
