Abstract
There is no standard or generally accepted test rig for fretting fatigue experiments. Therefore, researchers adopt an existing concept, or build a new test rig that meets their specific requirements. However, too many different test rigs may be disadvantageous because the results of two different test rigs are hard to compare. The increasing amount of diversity is mainly caused by the lack of a recent literature survey on fretting fatigue test rigs. In 1994, Hills and Nowell described a few test rigs in Mechanics Of Fretting Fatigue. In this study, the authors made a classification of test rigs based on the contact geometry, which is determined by the test specimens, not by the test rig itself. The authors of this article present a review of the available literature, and present a classification based on the properties of test rigs. Fretting fatigue test rigs are first divided in two categories based on the geometry of the test specimen: full scale and coupon scale test rigs. The latter are mostly used to perform research and are subdivided in categories based on increasing functionalities. This is the ability to apply a fatigue load, a constant normal force, and an alternating slip in the range of some micrometers. In time, from the fifties until now, progress has been seen in the design of fretting fatigue test rigs. More parameters can be controlled during experiments and more measuring techniques are incorporated. State of the art test rigs are classified in the last category with mostffunctionalities, but still have imperfections. Future designers can use this article to classify their needs, or help to design a better test rig knowing the imperfections of the state of the art test rigs.
