Xingyu ZHU, Xiaoyi JIN, Peipei TIAN, Zhengzhu ZHOU, Yuyi LIN


This paper is a study of pin on disc wear volume, with the MMW-1A vertical friction and wear testing machine as the testing equipment, under different lubrication conditions. In this paper, the pin wear volume GM(1,1) prediction model is built based on the grey system theory, GM(1,1) the model consists of a single variable in the first-order differential equation. The pin wear volume measured compare with GM(1,1) predicted wear volume, The comparison results showed that, the predicted values by the GM(1,1) are very close to the experiment measured values, and the precision of predicted results is quite high.
