Abstract

A method was developed to measure the wear of general engineering surfaces based on the roughness parameters of the worn surfaces. This method does not require any information of the initial surface. The surface height distribution is described using Johnson translatory system where the loss of surface height is attributed to wear. Experiments of engine running in were conducted to validate the method. The results show that the current method can determine wear comparable to surface roughness. The current approach simplifies the profilometrical wear measurement and extends such a measurement to non-Gaussian surfaces.
