Effects of Penetrated Graphite on Tribological Properties of Copper Based Journal Bearing
Tribological properties of copper based porous alloy with penetrated micro size graphite layer were evaluated using a ring on disc testing apparatus in dry condition. A shot peening treatment was applied to ensure the dimple for the graphite penetration. Specimens with various area fraction of the graphite layer were prepared. It was found that the friction coefficient and the wear loss decreased with the increase in the area fraction. However, the decrease of the friction and the wear loss became smaller at excess graphite area fraction.
