Third International Tribology Conference

The Intent and Work

The intent of this study was to determine if the behavior of tribological processes can be controlled by applying a magnetic field. If material properties and characteristics can be changed by magnetic treatment, then the behavior of tribological processes can be controlled by applying a magnetic field, since process behavior depends on material characteristics.

What was done was to

Also, for washers that were not used in running bearings hardness was measured in original manufactured condition and after pulsed magnetic treatment.
