6.1 Introduction

Wear could be described as the surface behavior of a material when being subjected to continuous motion during interaction with another counterface. The quantity that relates closely to the wear of the material is the mass loss of the material after interaction. If the mass loss of a material is high when being grazed or abraded, it denotes that the material wears easily or the wear rate of the said material is high. There are various mechanisms of wear, such as the fiber–matrix debonding, the ...
