Wear properties of aluminium-based alloys

C. Subramanian,     Black Cat Blades Ltd, Canada

Abstract:

Aluminium is one of the light-weight elements that form several engineering alloys and composites because of its unusual blend of properties such as low density, high strength, corrosion resistance, non-magnetic properties and low cost. In this chapter, a brief background on aluminium is described, followed by an introduction to wear and its various types. Wear behaviour of aluminium alloys is complex and can vary under different application conditions. Under sliding wear conditions, the wear rate of aluminium is affected by applied load, sliding speed, type of counterface material, etc. The influence of alloying elements on the wear behaviour ...
