The primary effect of abrasion of a journal surface is to cause increased friction, cutting, and plowing at the point where the particle is in solid contact with journal and bearing. This increase in friction, will in turn, produce secondary effects such as reduction in journal speed and increase in temperature. It is these secondary effects which most conveniently lend themselves to quantitative study and which are most readily reproduced in laboratory tests.
