    Feng, Zheng, 2017-01-25T14:25:56Z, University of Cape Town
    Solid particle erosion tests of glass, stainless steel, WC-Co and sintered alumina, have been performed with seven erodents using a range of particle diameters D (63 μm - 1000 μm), velocities V (33 m.s⁻¹ - 131 m.s⁻¹ ) and impact angles α (30° - 90°). The seven erodents are steel shot, glass beads, s ...
