Tribological Characteristics of Carbon Nano-Fiber Dispersed Silicon Nitride Based Composites in High-Temperature Fuel

Abstract:

Article Preview

The effect of carbon nano-fiber (CNF) dispersion on the tribological behavior of Si3N4 based composites against bearing steel were investigated in kerosene. The friction coefficients were not affected by the CNF addition. On the other hand, the wear rates of Si3N4/CNF composites showed a minimum value on 3 mass% CNF additions. The primary wear mechanism of Si3N4 is considered to be controlled by oxidation wear of Si3N4 due to a trace amount of water as impurity in the kerosene.
