This paper deals with high temperature dry sliding wear behaviour and its mechanism of carbonitrided AISI 8620 steel. The sliding wear behaviour of the carbonitrided AISI 8620 steel was investigated using a pin on disc equipment at 100°C with varying parameters like normal load and sliding velocity. The scanning electron microscopy features of the worn samples reveal that abrasion with shallow and narrower wear track is the dominant wear mechanism of carbonitrided AISI 8620 at 50 N, while at… Expand
