Abstract


The article focuses on the analysis of acoustic emission signals generated under dry sliding friction conditions. Two tests were conducted using a TRB3 tribometer with the disc made of 100Cr6 steel with a DLC coating, and pin made of corundum (Al2O3) and steel 100Cr6, respectively. Two tests with the disc without DLC coating were also carried out. The audio data written in the 16-bit linear pulse-code modulation (LPCM) format were analysed using the SpectraPLUS software. An Aweighting filter and 1/1 and 1/3-octave band filters were used for sound level measurements. The analysis of the equivalent sound level calculated for 10-second time intervals was carried out. The highest A-weighted sound level occurred during the first 2 hours of the test with the disc having a DLC coating and pin made of 100Cr6 steel. At the end of this test, the sound level dropped by about 40 dB compared to the maximum. The lowest A-weighted sound level was recorded during the last 2 hours of the test with disc having a DLC coating and pin made of corundum. The time-dependent variability of sound parameters was predicted using the regression tree and random forest models, which proved to be accurate and easy to follow.
