12B10 The effect of frequency of oscillation on rates and mechanisms of fretting wear Prof. Philip SHIPWAY(UK) N/A Two publications resulting from the work conducted at high frequencies are now in preparation (one associated with the effect of frequency on the fretting behaviour of a steel in atmospheric conditions and the other associated with the effect of frequency on the fretting behaviour of a steel in oil-lubricated condition). The first of these articles is being prepared for submission to Transactions of the Royal Society of London (Impact Factor = 2.37), and it is expected that this will be submitted by June 2014. The work programme for the second article is entirely complete, and it is expected that this will be submitted to an international journal by August 2014.
