The high-alloy carbon steel used in mining tools of Wear mechanisms

Archards equation describes the easiest forms of wear, see Equation 1. The theory of Archard says that the volume loss will be a linear function of rubbing distance at constant wear speed and the volumetric wear rate will be proportional to the applied load. Presence of water: The presence of water ...


Wear Testing Method of Pin-on-Disk Apparatus

For the pin-on-disk wear test, two specimens are required. One, a pin with a radiused tip, is positioned perpendicular to the other, usually a flat circular disk. A ball, rigidly held, is often used as the pin specimen. The test machine causes either the disk specimen or the pin specimen to revolve ...

The difference of Air permeability test standards in different countries

Air permeability is the measure of air flow passed through a given area of a fabric. This parameter influences the thermal comfort properties of fabrics to a large extent. It is generally accepted that the air permeability of a fabric depends on its air porosity, which in turn influences its opennes...
