A comparison of material removal mechanism under low stress abrasive condition of steel and hardfacing alloys
- 62 Downloads
The low stress abrasive wear behavior of two types of steels commonly used for making a number of commonly used engineering components has been compared with the composition of a few hardfacing alloys that can be overlayed on the steels to impart a wear-resistant surface. The mechanism of material removal as studied by the scanning electron micrographs of the worn and transverse sections is different for the steels and hardfacing alloys. An attempt has been made to explain the mechanism of material removal for the steels and hardfacing alloys.
