    Abstract

    Wear exacts a high price on our economy, exceeding tens of billions of dollars per year. Anyone who owns an automobile conveyances rolling down the highways, plowing the seas, flying through the skies, and the cost becomes astronomical. Not surprisingly, wear manifests itself in many places—from the grinding of our teeth and the fretting of our joints to the immense turbine drives that power great aircraft carriers and the motors, gears and bearings that run the machines of industry.
