It is shown that the rate of wear can be related to 'index of wear intensity' using a leaf-spring in the disc on disk on wear tests. Since both upper and lower specimens have used the same hardness values, equivalent hardness of 'the index of wear intensity' used the mean hardness value of specimens. This index is derived from the external variables of load, sliding speed and the hardness of the sliding pairs. The wear behavior as the hardness of the sliding elements on the dry wear has been investigated using a disc on disc configuration. The materials of the specimens are used as ten kinds along their hardness. Using experimental data, we figured the relationship between wear rate and index of wear intensity. A newly wear equation had been derived the result using a leaf-spring in disc on disc wear system.
