The formation of a built-up-edge has been differentiated into two mechanisms, that is, adhesion or nucleation of built-up-edge and growth of adhered metal. As to adhesion, the affinity between tool and work material has been investigated experimentally. The findings are that the position of a metal in the periodic table and the solubilities of the mating metals are substantially associated with the strength of adhesion. Although the temperature at the interface is primarily significant to accelerate the adhesion, the effect of relative velocity has been revealed to be negligible. Theoretical analogy and experimental analysis have led to a conclusion that work-hardenability is a requisite condition for the existence and growth of built-up-edge.
