An effort is made to functionally connect the morphology of a surface damaged by friction with the sequence of events leading to the damage. The connection between a destructive situation and the resulting morphology is established. The reverse connection, i.e., the use of the morphology as a diagnostic tool, is not complete, mainly because some of the characteristics suggestive of the mechanisms are erased. Still, for cases of one friction pass, e.g., on a spiral track friction machine, the reverse connection is also established.
