Temperature effect on the process of wear of a fibrous composite under high load conditions


A model of the fibrous composite material friction and wear process is constructed taking into account the heating of the friction surface. The inhomogeneous temperature expansion of the composite components and the resulting fiber/matrix slippage near the friction surface and the friction surface profile change is considered. The influence of temperature on the distribution of stresses in the fiber and matrix and on the roughness of the friction surface of the composite is determined.
