The effect of impact angle on the erosion rate of polycrystalline alpha-Al2O3

Abstract:

Wet erosive wear tests with SiC particle impacts at 45°, 60°, 75° and 90° were performed on polycrystalline α-Al2O3 specimens of mean grain size 1.2, 3.8 and 14.1 μm. The erosion rate was found to be strongly dependent on impact angle, being three to four times greater for impacts at 90° than for 45° impacts. The erosion rate varied strongly with grain size; the coarse grained material had erosion rates about six times greater than those of the finest grained material. The worn areas due to i...
