Abstract

The mechanism of rapid erosion is clarified by observing its progress in a centrifugal pump with two-dimensional blades of aluminium alloy. The erosion was observed using both scanning electron microscopy and optical microscopy. The influence of the plastic deformation pits resulting from vortex cavitation on the rapid erosion is examined. (P.M.T.)
