Abstract : The document is concerned with radioactive techniques--especially the tracer technique--which are being successfully used for combating wear by determining the degree and the mechanism of wear. The possibilities of using artificial radionuclides for the determination of wear and the transfer of material in friction processes were recognized as far back as 25 years. In this connection, investigations with technically important wear pairings preponderate strongly over fundamental research5
