The friction-induced thermal energy at the contacting surface increases the contact temperature which changes the material properties and produces thermal stresses in the body. Plastic yielding of the contacting bodies resulting from the combined thermal and isothermal effects is investigated. An associated wear mechanism controlled by plastic deformation is introduced, and a wear control approach is presented.
