J. Tribol 137(3), 031501 (Jul 01, 2015) (11 pages) Paper No: TRIB-14-1169; doi: 10.1115/1.4029770 History: Received July 17, 2014; Revised February 07, 2015; Online March 25, 2015

Benefits of surface textures for improving the performance behaviors of tribo-contacts are being explored and established by the investigators across the globe. But the consolidated information of findings of such explorations are spread. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to summarize the information available related to the preparation of surface textures and performance outcomes in the presence of surface textures at the concentrated contacts. Mainly, recent research findings and practices followed for the study of friction, wear, lubrication, contact fatigue, vibration, and noise at the generic concentrated contacts in presence of surface textures are reviewed for current status of research in the area and outlining the future prospects.
