Tribological Studies of Steels Using the Abrasive Wheel
The abrasive wear behaviors of different types of steels were evaluated using the abrasive wheel as a new technique in the pin on disc method. It is shown that the abrasive studies using this test method is acceptable for high wear resistance metals such as Hadfield steels, while it is not proper for soft materials such as mild steel. The test results on the different materials also show that initial hardness of materials cannot merely determine the wear resistance. However, microstructural changes during the sliding have significant effect on the wear behavior and must be included.
