Wear Analysis

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology book series (BRIEFSAPPLSCIENCES)


The wear and friction measurements have been proposed by various researchers (Anderson et al. 1984). Deuis et al. (1997) have presented a review on the dry sliding wear of aluminium composites. The friction and wear mechanisms of aluminium composites and the influence of applied load, sliding speed, wearing surface hardness, model for wear volume and the role of reinforcement phase are also have been presented. Tjong et al. (1997) have conducted wear tests on compo- cast aluminum silicon alloys reinforced with low volume fraction of SiC. Based on the wear test conducted on the block on ring, they have concluded that the addition low volume fraction of SiC particles is an effective way of increasing the wear resistance of the matrix alloy. Kwok and Lim (1999) have investigated the friction and wear behavior of four Al/SiCp composites over a wide range of sliding conditions by the use of a specially adapted high speed tester of the pin on disc configuration.
