Project: Tribological research of High Performance Self-Lubricating Polymers and Polymer Based Composites: on-line monitoring of failure
- project duration
- 01-FEB-05 – 31-JAN-08
- Experimental investigation of friction and wear behaviour of High Performance polymer based composites such as PI, PAI, PPS, PEEK, … by means of small-scale and large-scale tribotests. Study of fundamental mechanisms causing damage of the contact surfaces. Use of modern techniques such as acoustic emission, image analysis, debris analysis, vibration measurements for on-line and post mortem damage analysis.
