The effect of normal load on fretting wear of the dimple-gimbal interface is investigated. The wear volume, the wear coefficient and the friction-displacement loops are studied as a function of the number of fretting wear cycles. The wear volume of the dimple is calculated from the radius of the wear scar obtained using scanning electron microscopy. The results show that the wear coefficient decreases with an increase in the number of fretting wear cycles.
