Abstract

In abrasive wear, three wear modes were observed: cutting, wedge or prow forming and ploughing. These modes were observed with bras (60Cu-40Zn), S45C (0.45% carbon steel) and SUS304 (18Cr-8Ni austenitic stainless steel) in the scanning electron microscope and related to load and frictional force. Degree of penetration, Dp, was introduced as an index to describe the severity of contact. A wear mode diagram was developed to show the possible region for each wear mode of cutting, wedge forming or ploughing with parameters of Dp and the shearing strength at the contact interface.
