Validation measurements are carried out by means of pin-on-disk measurements, in which the pin consists of a cylindrical element, resulting in a line contact situation in contact with the disk. For these measurements a special high load pin-on-disk tribotester has been developed. From the experiments can be concluded that the measured transitions are well predicted by the model which is developed in this thesis, in contrast to the calculation models known from literature.
