Fretting can be defined as a relative motion with a very small amplitude between two oscillating surfaces. Depending on the applied normal load and relative displacements, various sliding regimes can be identified: a partial slip and a gross slip. A fretting damage type is dependent on sliding regimes, and it leads to cracking (fretting fatigue) under a partial slip (lower amplitude) and wear damage under a gross slip (higher amplitude).
