One of primary applications of zircaloy-4 in sliding contact is the bearing pads of fuel bundle of Indian PHWRs (Pressurised Heavy Water Reactors).

An acme or trapezoidal screw, which hereafter will be addressed as lead screw, consists of a screw and a nut that are in sliding contact with each other.
Tribological behavior of metals which are in sliding contact depends on the many variables such as normal load applied on the material, sliding speed, sliding distance, surface geometry, surface hardness, roughness of operating surface, working environment, etc., which affect the wear mechanism and results in change of wear rate [35].
On the other hand, the rotors in the conical screw compressor are in continuous rolling and sliding contact, and friction can present a challenge.
A lab-scale test (ball-on-pyramid) was used for fundamental studies into a lubricated steel to plastic sliding contact. Although the detailed relation between this lab-scale test and the actual chain drive application is quite complex, comparisons to motorized engine tests showed qualitative agreement.
The wear of the sliding contact materials contributes to warming, to dissipate the energy of friction between the two materials.
The non-contacting sensing technology also facilitates clean, ratiometric absolute position outputs across multiple turns without sliding contact noise.
When fixed embedding occurs, there exists a fixed contact potential energy function [[PI].sub.fix]; when sliding embedding occurs, there exists a sliding contact potential energy function [[PI].sub.slide].
In this study, a measure of damage was defined as the Coulomb friction coefficient; that is, a nondamaged state is associated with the friction coefficient at the steady-state sliding contact after the running-in period.
