A method for determining a linear wear comparable to a surface roughness height is described here. The method allows estimation of the wear by results of profilometry of the worn surface only. The formulas presented provide wear evaluation for surfaces modeled by Gaussian random fields. The method simplifies the technology of precise wear measurements, improves their accuracy, and increases the availability of profilometrical ways of wear analysis.
