Project: Electrically conductive wear resistant composite materials.

project duration
01-JAN-02 – 31-DEC-03
abstract
Different types of electrical conductive ceramic materials will be tribologically characterized by means of ball-on-flat tests, as a function of load, sliding velocity and contact temperature. Friction and wear behaviour will be examined and gathered into so-called friction and 'wear maps' according to Ashby's method. The same materials will also be subjected to spark erosion process and tribological changes will be investigated.
