Quantitative surface fractography of alumina and alumina-SiC composites during diamond grinding

Abstract:

It has recently been shown that small additions of SiC to alumina can significantly improve both the surface finish for a given grinding treatment, and the resistance to severe wear. This paper describes experiments designed to obtain a clearer understanding of the mechanisms involved by correlating quantitative measurements of surface fracture during a standard abrasive wear test with the wear rate for a range of microstructures. The surface fracture parameters measured were (i) the proporti...
