In the context of developing an innovative seismic dissipation system, which aims to compromise on the steadiness of friction and processes costs, this work deals with the tribological characterization of an S355JR structural steel, whose surface has been preliminarily treated by different mechanical and galvanic processes. Tribological tests were performed in a pin-on-disk configuration and in reciprocating motion, using values of 1 Hz and 2 Hz as the motion inversion frequency, a constant normal load of 50 N, and variable test duration, according to the most frequent seismic events. The tribological system was composed of S355JR structural steel pins and disks of the same steel, which were alternatively treated by electrolytic nickel plating, electrolytic zinc plating, and two different shot peening processes. The results highlight that while electrolytic nickel increments the overall steadiness of the coefficient of friction (COF), electrolytic zinc plating guarantees the longest first steady-state stage and a COF lower than the one guaranteed by the coupling of untreated pins and disk.

Abstract

In the context of developing an innovative seismic dissipation system, which aims to compromise on the steadiness of friction and processes costs, this work deals with the tribological characterization of an S355JR structural steel, whose surface has been preliminarily treated by different mechanical and galvanic processes. Tribological tests were performed in a pin-on-disk configuration and in reciprocating motion, using values of 1 Hz and 2 Hz as the motion inversion frequency, a constant normal load of 50 N, and variable test duration, according to the most frequent seismic events. The tribological system was composed of S355JR structural steel pins and disks of the same steel, which were alternatively treated by electrolytic nickel plating, electrolytic zinc plating, and two different shot peening processes. The results highlight that while electrolytic nickel increments the overall steadiness of the coefficient of friction (COF), electrolytic zinc plating guarantees the longest first steady-state stage and a COF lower than the one guaranteed by the coupling of untreated pins and disk.
