Abstract:

A unique erosion test facility was designed such that the aerodynamic effects are an integral part of the test parameters. The alloys studied in this investigation are 2024 aluminum, 410 stainless steel and 6A1-4V titanium. High speed movies were used to examine and determine the impact and rebound characteristics of the solid particles. The effects of particle velocity and impact angle were found to be statistical in nature. The statistical distributions of these impact parameters were determined experimentally. The rebound data was then related to the erosion damage incurred. In addition, the effect of temperature on the erosion of the alloys was also studied. Author
