Experiments were conducted to study the start of fretting and the cause of damage during the early stages (up to 400 cycles) of fretting of steel-steel combinations at a frequency of 5 cycles per minute, an amplitude of 0.006 inch, a load of 150 grams, in air with relative humidity of less than 10 percent.
