Reliability Prediction and Demonstration for Wear Failure Mechanism 2024-26-0323

Wear phenomenon has extensively been published in the literature and this paper presents a methodology of how the wear models were used to assess the risk of failures in a field application, through endurance testing at a system level. Correlation of the wear prediction by the model with actual measurement was performed and used to predict the field operation reliability. Results are shown for sliding wear as well as impact wear phenomenon in this paper. In the case of sliding wear, wear modeling and prediction was done for a friction material using a system level metric, and the mean wear predicted was not different from the model predicted values at 95% confidence under a field application duty cycle.
