For many engineering components the primary problems to be prevented during operation are wear and fatigue crack growth. However, in many cases one of these mechanisms dominates to the extent that the other may be neglected. In cases where both processes of almost equal importance in determining component life their interaction or coupling becomes critical. This paper presents a generic introduction to the concept of interaction between wear and fatigue in the failure of an engineering component. To illustrate the topics discussed a detailed example is presented of wear-fatigue interaction in the failure of a railway rail.
