Abstract—To control wear and friction several methods like soft/hard film coating, multi-phase alloying and composite structuring have been developed. We can say that coefficient of friction and wear are not the material properties but they are the responses of tribo-sysytem. They have a relation with each other. Wear is defined as a set of adhesion, transfer, abrasion, fatigue and oxidation. Due to these processes transfer of matter takes place from one state to another. The final transformation in wear is a collection of free debris particles.

Index Terms—Wear, Friction, Roughness, Hardness, Ductility, Oxide film, Transfer
