  • Fretting Unit

    The Fretting Unit offers the following 3 individual services: - S65: In-service behaviour of components subjected to fretting wear and fretting fatigue: Combined modelling of wear and fatigue finite element simulation and experimental characterization for fatigue life assessment and service optimisation. - S66: The unit is supported by the surface metrology laboratory for wear track measurement, surface topographical characterization and the identification of damage mechanisms. The lab is equipped with quantitative measuring equipment (optical profilometer: confocal, interferometry and focus variation and tactile profilometer), and on the other hand with Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) for qualitative surface observations and chemical composition determination (EDX). - S67: Technical training in tribology (friction, wear, and fretting) and surface metrology ( measurement standards and roughness characterization) for professionals.
