Abstract

The transportation industry widely involves materials which are in a sliding contact. The friction in the various contact pairs such as pistons, bearings, valves, gears, etc. in an automobile is a major contributor to the energy losses. Apart from the emissions from the automobile exhaust, the wear debris also poses a threat to the living organisms. Tribologists and material scientists are working to mitigate the energy losses incurred in the various sliding wear applications. The growing energy demands and the environmental consciousness have added to the quest. The mitigation of the energy losses and the consequent environmental impact can be achieved by way of the following strategies:
