A study of internal stresses produced as a result of lubricated reversing friction

  • 76 Accesses


New experimental data on internal stresses produced in steel surface layers as a result of reversing friction in the presence of various lubricants are reported showing that the addition of organic alcohols to oil affects friction and friction-induced internal stresses, and that the use of oleic acid as a lubricant additive destroys the effect of alternating the direction of friction and leads to radical changes in the magnitude and distribution of internal stresses of the first kind.
