Study on Frictional Wear Property of the High Vanadium High Speed Steel


Article Preview

The frictional resistance and abrasion mechanism of high vanadium high speed steel were studied by the self-made friction wear testing machine under the conditions of 10% slip-roll ratio. Results show that the frictional resistance increases with the increase of carbon content and is optimal when the carbon content is 2.92%. The carbon content affect the wear resistance by changing the amount of the retained austenite and the shapes of carbides, the moderate quantities of retained austenite makes the matrix have better impact toughness and hardness; The spherical VC can prevent the initiation and expansion of cracks forming and make the frictional resistance increase. The abrasion mechanism is fatigue flake under the condition of rolling and sliding.
