This study analyzed adhesive wear in periodic sliding motion using a quasi-static deterministic wear model that considered changes in the point of contact of asperities as well as changes in the surface and statistical parameters. The contact pressure was calculated using the semi-analytical method (SAM) based on the periodic properties of the rough surface, and the wear was analyzed by obtaining the wear depth for each node using the Archard wear model. We took into account that the sliding

We compared the results of the quasi-static wear analysis with the truncation model and the deterministic fixed model, which did not consider the change in the asperity contact point. In the truncation model, an error in the estimation of the radius occurred in the process of fitting the tip of asperities with a sphere. As the asperities became flatter by wear, this error accumulated, which revealed a difference in the deterministic wear analysis results. As a result of the wear analysis on the periodic surface, the RMS roughness of the positively skewed surface decreased the fastest, the skewness increased in the negative direction, and the kurtosis initially decreased and then increased. In addition, wear scars occurred due to the difference in wear depth between the lower stationary surface and the upper moving surface.
