Abstract: This work presents a novel approach of sliding ball-on-disk wear tests where the disc material is investigated. Each part of the wear track on the disc is in discontinuous contact with the counterbody. The contact frequency at each part of the wear track on the disc with the counterbody is defined by the rotation frequency of the disc. The sliding speed is however a function of both the rotation frequency and wear track diameter. In this work, the effect of the contact frequency on friction and wear was investigated on carbon steel in discontinuous sliding contact with corundum balls. Various sliding speeds were used while maintaining the contact frequency at a fixed value, and various contact frequencies were applied at constant sliding speeds.
