Tribotesting of large-scale specimens: the necessity of proper design

Author
Organization
Abstract
Tribological tests have always been difficult and expensive to run, as the tests should as closely as possible mimic the application (Czichos, 1982). This has a number of implications: the tests cannot be sped up by applying higher contact pressure and/or velocity and the geometry and the environment of the test should match those of the application. Nonetheless most of the tribological tests are performed at small scale to minimize the cost of testing. This paper elaborates on the reasons why small scale testing, done on the cheap, often results in expensive mistakes.
