An Abrasive Wear Model of Interpenetrating Composites
Owing to two phases are continuous and penetrated each other, Interpenetrating composites exhibit good abrasive wear properties, can be an attractive candidate for structural and functional materials. Specifically, the abrasive wear model of IPCs is an important topic in the field of tribology. In present work, the model has been proposed according to the mixing rule. Many factors such as special topology structure characteristic of reinforcement, hardness and elastic module are discussed in this model. One kind of Al2O3/Mg composite with different volume content was fabricated and many test data of friction wear were obtained. These data validate the correctness and universality of model.
