Abrasive Wear Caused by EMC Particles
An experimental facility is built up to investigate the abrasive wear behavior of EMC particles. The parameters explored include particle impacting velocity and impacting angle. The results show that the erosion rate depends on both the particle impacting velocity and impacting angle. A higher velocity will cause more erosion whereas a smaller impacting angle will cause more erosion, especially at higher impacting velocities. Furthermore, the morphology of the eroded particles is irregular in shape and a smaller impacting angle will result in a larger dimension of the eroded particles.
