Fretting wear is a material damage in contact surfaces due to micro relative displacement between them. It causes some general problems in industrial applications, such as loosening of fasteners or sticking in components supposed to move relative to each other. Fretting wear is a complicated problem involving material properties of tribo-system and working conditions of them. Due to these various factors, researchers have studied the process of fretting wear by experiments and numerical modelling methods. This paper reviews recent literature on the numerical modelling method of fretting wear. After a briefly introduction on the mechanism of fretting wear, numerical models, which are critical issues for fretting wear modelling, are reviewed. The paper is concluded by highlighting possible research topics for future work.
