The impact of fretting wear on structural dynamics: Experiment and Simulation
This paper investigates the effects of fretting wear on frictional contacts. A high frequency friction rig is used to measure the evolution of hysteresis loops, friction coefficient and tangential contact stiffness over ...
Observations of variability and repeatability in jointed structures
The experimental study of joint mechanics has been limited in its effectiveness due to the high uncertainty associated with assemblies of sub-components. In particular, two categories of uncertainty are variability (the ...
