Abstract

Fretting fatigue occurs in contacting parts which are simultaneously subjected to fluctuating loadsand very small sliding movements. This phenomenon can significantly reduce the fatigue life ofcomponents. This paper focuses on the conceptual design of an advanced,Ghent University, Laboratory Soete, Belgiumespecially in functionality andhuman engineering,Keywords Fretting, fatigue, test rigtest rig for fretting fatigue experiments. Different designs of test rigs are evaluated byweighing their advantages and disadvantages.
