This Good Practice guide aims to provide guidance on erosive wear testing. It contains a description of the four common erosion test systems (gas jet; centrifugal accelerator; wind tunnel; whirling arm), and a discussion on the important variables in erosion such as particle impact velocity, particle impact angle, particle size, shape and material, and ambient temperature. A short review of techniques for data analysis and interpretation is also included.
It also contains a discussion on the most effective approach to wear testing and considers the different aspects that should be be taken into account when designing a programme of friction and wear testing.
In Annex A, specific guidance is given on gas jet erosion, on how test conditions should be set and the procedures that should be used.
