Theoretical and Experimental Analysis of the Influence of Abrasives on Nozzle in Pre-Mixed Abrasive Water Jet
This paper introduces the influence of the shape, grain size, density and hardness of abrasives particles on nozzle wear. Different parameters of abrasive hardness are investigated through theoretic and experimental analysis. The results show that the ratio of abrasive hardness to nozzle material hardness governs the wear rate Ca.
