A new design for fretting experiments is presented. The normal and tangential contact loads as well as the specimen bulk stress are separately controlled. The separate control of load systems enables more accurate simulations of the fretting situations in component interfaces. Also, the influence of the salient parameters can be investigated individually. The initial test series comprised a spherical indenter and constant normal load and bulk stress. The evolution of the slip zone coefficient of friction at a spherical fretting contact was evaluated in four different ways. For two of these methods new equations were derived. The importance of a correct coefficient of friction and the advantages of each evaluation method are discussed. The experimental results were evaluated with respect to fretting fatigue crack initiation. Five multi-axial fatigue criteria were evaluated and ranked with respect to their ability to predict fretting fatigue initiation properties. The endurance limits of all criteria were too high as compared to the experimental fretting fatigue endurance level. A qualitative explanation for the discrepancy was found in the surface profile of the slip zone.
