  • Sheiretov, T.K.; Cusano, C. (Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Center. College of Engineering. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 1997-08)
    Some typical applications where scuffing may occur are gear teeth, piston rings and cylinder pairs, cams and followers, splines, sleeve bearings, and parts of swash and wobble plate compressors. Unlike other tribology-related ...

  • Yoon, H.K.; Cusano, C. (Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Center. College of Engineering. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 1999-01)
    A few among many otherwise highly successful lubricated sliding components fail catastrophically and without warning. This sudden mode of failure is often called scuffing. The phenomenon of scuffing has been known for ...
