Abstract

Feodor M. Borodich Technological Institute, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois 60208-3109 Stephen J. Harris Physical and Environmental Sciences Dept., MD #3083, Ford Research Laboratory, Dearborn, Michigan 48121-2053 Leon M. Keer Technological Institute, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois 60208-3109 We discuss a remarkably simple power-law relationship observed between the abrasion rate of an initially spherical slider by hard carbon-containing films and the number of sliding cycles n to which the film has been subjected. The power-law relationship is valid up to 4 orders of magnitude in n. We model this phenomenon by connecting it with nanocharacteristics of the coatings. It is proposed to explain the phenomenon by a statistically self-similar variation of the pattern of relatively sharp nanometer-scale asperities of the films.
