Impact wear can be defined as the wear of a solid surface that is due to percussion, which is a repetitive exposure to dynamic contact by another solid body. This article discusses the volume (or mass) removal of material either at or under engineering contact stress levels and outlines a rational, semi-empirical impact wear theory. It illustrates a linear wear mechanism that occurs in print heads and repetitive impacts that take place in metallic machine contacts. The article concludes with information on plotting a wear curve for an originally plane, massive carbon steel machine platen subjected to repetitive compound...
