Abstract: This paper describes the effects of magnetic field in rolling contact tests of steel by using a two-disc configuration and the investigation of mechanisms involved. Two contact conditions, namely pure rolling and rolling with 10% sliding were used together with 0.4 and 1.1 Tesla horizontal static magnetic fields created by permanent magnets. Results of optical and scanning electron microscope observations point out that finer wear particles and smoother worn surfaces are produced in the presence of a magnetic field. It is proposed that finer wear particles result from the movement of subsurface crack initiation towards the surface due to the action of magnetic field,
