Paper Abstract

Measurement of Surface temperature in friction has became attracted extensive attention in modern industry, especially in manufacture. When the temperature in friction exceed a given value, the wear of parts will be accelerated. Some of the failed parts exhibited enormous thermal damage. Infrared thermography (ITG), sometimes called infrared(IR) imaging system, provides a quantification of the degradation in thermal performance as the machine are working and can be used to identify degrading parts for replacement before failures become immanent. A novel test technique is described in which surface temperatures were measured during tests of a rotating ring and a flat block which had a thermocouples embedded under its contact surface. The technique involves measurement of the radiation emitted by a side of the specimen immediately adjoining the ring-block contact region using a Charge Coupled Device (CCD) based ITG. By using an appropriate calibration procedure, measured radiation values are converted to temperatures. Novel aspects of the experimental technique are non-intrusive and full-field dynamic measurement at high spatial resolution and high sensitivity. This technique should facilitate study of thermal damage and multi-scale of thermal models in friction.
