•Tribocorrosion is a dynamic system that evolves with time.•The wear evolution with time can be described using a numerical contact model based on a Boundary Element Method (BEM).•After the 300 initial cycles, the classical Archard wear model describes the wear evolution with time.•The proposed model is able to predict the wear profiles of the worn material.•The plastic behavior of the material at the beginning of the tribocorrosion tests is taken into account in the model.
