Abstract

Significant progress has been made in recent years on the study of micro-abrasion mechanisms of materials. Regimes of micro-abrasion have been proposed which identify whether the wear occurs either by a two-body or a three-body mechanism. Micro-abrasion maps have been constructed showing the variation in wear regime, as a function of applied load and sliding distance. There has, however, been little work carried out to date on the micro-abrasion of composite coatings in such conditions. Here, because the size of the contact zone of the abrasion event may approach that of the abradant and the reinforcement (both typically
