Dry Sliding Wear Behavior of Hot Pressed Fe-28Al and Fe-28Al-10Ti Alloys
Fe-28Al and Fe-28Al-10Ti alloys were prepared by mechanical alloying and hot pressing. The phases and dry sliding wear behavior were studied. The results show that Fe-28Al bulk materials are mainly characterized by the low ordered B2 Fe3Al structure with some dispersed Al2O3 particles. Fe-28Al-10Ti exhibits more excellent wear resistance than Fe-28Al, especially after long distance sliding wear test. There are obvious differences in wear mechanisms of Fe-28Al and Fe-28Al-10Ti alloys under different testing conditions. Under the load of 100N, there is plastic deformation on the worn surface of Fe-28Al. The main wear performance of Fe-28Al-10Ti is particle abrasion, the characteristics of which are micro cutting and micro furrows, but micro-crack and layer splitting begin to form on the surface of Fe-28Al. Under the load of 200N, serious plastic deformation and work-hardening lead to rapid crack propagation and eventually the fatigue fracture of Fe-28Al. Plastic deformation is the main wear mechanism of Fe-28Al-10Ti under the load of 200N, which are characterized by micro-crack and small splitting from the worn surface.
