A study of the room temperature controlled wet erosive wear of monolithic alumina and its composites with nano-sized particles of SiC is presented. The worn surfaces suggest that grain pull-out phenomenon is the dominant mechanism determining the wear rate. Within the composites, a higher strength does not necessarily translate into a higher wear rate. Wet erosive wear depends on grain size, porosity, volume fraction of SiC particles in the composites and possibly the morphology of the grains… CONTINUE READING
