Influence of Humidity, Air and Ice Temperature on Sliding Ability Characteristics of Friction Pair Stainless Steel-ice
Summary of the Doctoral Thesis
Ernests Jansons, Riga Technical University, Latvia
The influence of environmental parameters (air humidity, air and ice temperature) on the friction pair stainless steel-ice sliding ability is studied in the dissertation. Based on empirical measurements, a sliding time prediction model, depending on environmental conditions and measurement and prediction methodology, was developed. The texture and mechanical properties of the ice surface and the surface texture of steel samples were studied. The macrogeometry of the experimental samples was measured, the factors influencing the measurement accuracy in on-field experiments were analysed, and the experimental results in on-field and laboratory conditions were compared.
