The tribological and electrical conduction behaviors of copper under dry sliding against copper-chromium alloys were investigated on the basis of simulation tests. The experimental results show that electrical current and tribological parameters have combined effects on both electrical conduction ability and tribological properties. High sliding velocity and electrical current density deteriorate both the tribological and electrical conduction properties in tribo-electrical sliding system. In the end, the worn surface analysis suggests that friction, resistance heat and electrical arc spoiling are the main factors to influence the tribological and electrical conduction properties.
