This report gives a summary of the results of two industrial surveys. The first was a survey of industrial wear needs that also obtained information on the economic importance of wear problems to the individual firms that were contacted. This survey found that the most important wear problems were caused by abrasion of different types. The second survey was concerned with the test methods that are currently available and used by industry. This survey was supplemented with an analysis of literature and a compilation of the standards for wear testing. This analysis showed that there was a mismatch between the test methods that were used and the industrial need, with the most common test method reported in the literature being pin-on-disc wear testing.
The information from the surveys and the analysis was used to draw up a list of test methods which was felt to satisfy the industrial need. These test methods are briefly described.
