In this paper, a multi-scale methodology is proposed to model and characterize the effect of two lubricants on changes in surface morphology during a running-in test. The test concerns two steels samples, mounted on a twin-disc tribometer to test each of lubricants A and B for a period of 42 h. The changes are characterized by the standardized roughness parameters given in ISO 25178. A technique involving replication is used to monitor wear during the test. Using all these replication measurements, a multi-scale methodology is applied. These selected models highlighted the relevant parameters for quantifying wear during lifespan, and also showed that lubricant A was better able to preserve surface integrity during wear than lubricant B.
