Abstract : Five different metals were oscillated against each other to assess the extent of fretting damage. They were all lubricated with the same grease and were subjected to the same pressures and vibration rates. The extent of the fretting damage was dependent upon the softness of the metals and also upon the nature of the metals in contact. Metal specimens oscillated against a like metal suffered less damage than when different metals were in contact. (Author)
