INTERPRETATION OF FRICTION AND WEAR PROPERTIES OF MOS2 COATED STEEL SUBSTRATES.
93 - 101.
In a series of experiments, the friction coefficients and durability of steel substrates coated with thin films of molybdenum disulphide have been studied, for various values of the substrate roughness and the film thickness. The results are interpreted using a previously developed numerical contact model which simulates multiple asperity contact between rough surfaces. An additional mechanism involving failure by smoothing is suggested as a possible explanation of trends in previously obtained data for this tribological system.
