Severe contact stress problems generate high temperature and create thermomechanical gouging and wear due to high velocity sliding between two materials staying in contact. In order to improve the facilitation of the design of particular components and improve performance of these engineering applications, it is necessary to better understand the physical behavior of high speed environment. As presented here this environment is made up of two components in contact. Therefore, basing on the experimental approach (Lodygowski, 2010; Lodygowski et al., submitted for publication) the major consideration of this paper is aimed to develop an experimental/theoretical model for the material constitutive behavior in order to better characterize and predict the internal failure surrounding the gouging and wear events.
