Multi-scale experimental approach to cermets abrasion

Tribo-materials - Naveenkumar Rajedhran

Cermets are composite materials composed of hard carbide ceramic particles bonded together by a soft metallic binder. These materials are used in cutting tools and wear parts due to their excellent hardness/toughness combination. However, the information on microscale abrasive wear and the damage mechanism of these cermets is limited, requiring a deep understanding. This research studies the wear micro-mechanisms of different cermets from laboratory scale and creating a link to real application testing.
