Title: In situ environmentally-isolated wear tester

Abstract

The present invention relates to an in situ testing system, which includes a wear tester and an enclosure. The wear tester is configured to apply a normal load, by way of a tip, to a surface of the test sample. Use of an enclosure allows such wear testing to be conducted in a controlled environment.
