The research presented in this paper is part of the ongoing work by Moslehy and Rice et al. at the University of Central Florida in the investigation of sliding wear using laser techniques. This research paper investigates related wear phenomena, metallographically, and presents some general trends observed in the growth of the elastic - plastic interface as a function of time. Observations were made on the surface and at near surface sections on several brass pin specimens, each being subjected to sliding wear for various periods of time. Metallographic observation of the plastic deformation that occurred on the surface of a specimen corresponded to the results obtained by the laser technique.
