The Entropy Generation Theorem recently formulated by Bryant, Khonsari and Ling  relates any form of degradation to the irreversible dissipative processes germane to the degradation mechanism. The theorem was formulated and proved  based on the first and second laws of thermodynamics In this article, dry sliding wear will be related to dry sliding friction through application of the theorem. The result reproduces the Holm-Archard wear law, but with a wear coefficient based on measurement of temperatures and wear volume lost.
