The tribocorrosion process involves mechanical and electrochemical interaction between bodies in relative motion. The mechanical components in the tribocorrosion process are usually sliding wear, abrasion, cavitation damage, fretting, tribo-oxidation, and solid particle erosion. It is important to understand the mechanism of tribocorrosion for research and development of novel materials for service applications that involve simultaneous action of mechanical and electrochemical agents on engineering components. Such studies can provide tremendous benefits to automotive, biomedical, chemical, food processing, geothermal, marine, mining, and petrochemical industries, in terms reducing loss of materials and improving product performance and reliability.
