One of the major factors which causes deterioration of metals in service is wear. The cost of worn-out parts, the labor of replacement, and the time lost while repairing machinery represent a tremendous economic loss. The selection, on the basis of laboratory tests, of those metals or alloys which best resist wear is extremely difficult because of the m a n y complex factors involved. A study was recently completed of one special phase of this work, and a report will be issued in the September number of the Bureau of Standards Journal of Research. Tests of the wear-resistance of plain carbon steel were made in the Amsler machine (combined rolling and sliding friction under heavy pressures) to determine the effect of carbon content and heat t r e a t m e n t upon the wear-resistance of these particular steels. The results showed that the higher-carbon and the harder steels were more resistant to the particular type of wear studied than the lower-carbon and the softer steels.
