A wear model which permits the wear rate to be dependent on time is introduced to study the dynamic wear behavior observed in practice. In this model, it is postulated that the wear rate is proportional to a forcing term, I, which is contributed by the stress field induced by the frictional force at the asperity contacts; and inversely proportional to a wear resisting term, S, which is related to the material antiwear strength near the surface. One of the important characteristics of the dynamic wear model is that both I and S are now time dependent or wear dependent because when wear progresses the material strength at various layers would change and the stress field would also change as a result of the change of surface topography. Using this dynamic wear model, it is shown that the commonly observed running-in, steady-state, or accelerated wear phenomena can be explained.
