In this thesis, a wear model is developed that relates the properties of the materials and the operating conditions to the type of wear (mild or severe wear) experienced by dry sliding ceramic systems. The wear model is verified experimentally, and hence, with this model, one can determine wheather a dry sliding ceramic system will experience mild wear or severe wear.
