: I'm currently studying the topic of hardness and one question to which i don't find an answer is hardness matching.
: If you have one material of a certain hardness, how much damage will it do/undergo from contact (e.g. friction) with another material of a higher/lower hardness.
: Also, what hardness difference is acceptable to have equal wear on both parts.
: Are there any scales or charts for this, or is this just left to common sence ?
: Thanks in advance
Please go through the section on 'Adhesive wear' in Chapter 2 of my first book entitled 'Surface Wear- Analysis, Treatment,and Prevention",a best seller from ASM-International. I am sure you would find anwer to your questions.
