  • Introduction

    div class="middle_left_the" style="text-align:justify;"> In the automotive industry, development of wear and corrosion resistant materials is becoming more important for performance and strength of vehicle parts. Materials mining and further processing has developed alloys of metals such as Aluminum-silicon with optimal properties for transport application such as strength to weight ratio, low density and high thermal expansion coefficient properties of the material. The alloying element which is Silicon has ensured a significant improvement of the strength and wear and also maintaining durability of the joint as obtained through tensile tests. Compounds such as Titanium nitride alloys has gained improvement of safety and diffusion enabled properties for manufacture has obtained uses in the manufacturing industry and using conventional techniques such as chemical vapor deposition and plasma deposition. These processes increase hardness but due to the porosity of the structure leads to corrosion and further wear of the material. In the automotive industry this has led to the use of lubricants to reduce the wear and coefficient of friction of the material. In present findings it was found that the development of self-lubrication conditions in the boundary region could reduce the onset of wear when manufacturing processes and are used to create alloys with grain structures nanometer in size on the material. There are various methods of determining the wear of the alloyed metals such as sliding using a pin-on-disk apparatus. These involves testing the material under non-abrasive conditions to determine the coefficient of friction of the metal. In this review paper the literature on comparing different process and methods on testing friction of methods of sliding metal parts without lubrication of parts. These can be performed using various methods and the significance of each such as pin on disc, block on ring, bouncing ball and twin disc will be studied for measuring friction and wear properties of alloyed metals.
