Abstract—Hardness is one of the key factors which influence the sliding behavior of materials. In the
tribological pairs, the softer hardness among two materials is considered. Effects of hardness
are much more complex in tribological condition. Hardness varies with position and time. It also
depends on sliding speed, temperature and chemical environment and has a significant effect
on sliding behavior. Mechanical mixing strongly influence the local hardness. Hardness can also
effect transition phases in friction and wear and can help us to understand the geometric effects
when the materials are interchanged in the tribological system.
