    Abstract

    The metallic wear situations frequently encountered in office and data processing equipment are reviewed. Motions producing the wear and the nature of the interfaces are discussed. The reasons for wear testing for these applications are identified and a test methodology is discussed. The more frequently encountered wear tests (for example, ball-plane, pin-on-disk, and block-ring tests) are evaluated in terms of this background. An overview is established based on these considerations.
