The results of investigations by various authors on the influence of retained austenite on seizure are briefly considered. Using as an example the investigation of the critical temperature of mineral oil in the friction of alloyed steels, it is shown that the temperature of destruction of the lubricant layer appreciably depends on the nature and content of the alloying elements and doe not strictly depend on the retained austenite content in the surface layer of steel specimens. Certain questions are considered—the influence of the contact geometry on the determination of the critical temperature in conditions of boundary lubrication, and the expediency of using austenite steel for investigating the temperature stability of lubricant layers.
