A study was performed on the molecular dynamics simulations of asperity shear in aluminum. To determine their effects on the wear process, the simulations were repeated for a wide range of conditions, including velocities, temperatures, asperity shapes, degree of intersection, crystal orientations and adhesive strengths. The results showed that in determining the wear process the most significant factor is the interasperity bonding.
