  • Analytically induced wear mechanism of elastic body under Hertzian contact is applied in acutual wear test of ceramics. There are two types of wear in ceramics, a large scale wear and a small scale wear. The large scale wear is commensurable with Hertzian contact area and the small scale wear with real contact area. Nondimensional parameter, S$_{c}$, is introduced and fully examined to estimate or predict wear rate of ceramics. Ceramic wear for S$_{c}$.leq.0.8 is in small scale wear and for S$_{c}$;geq.1.6 in large scale wear. wear.

  • Scanning electron microscopic observations were carried out on the worn surface and the wear debris of ceramic materials to investigate the wear mechanism of those in dry rolling contact. It was found from the scanning electron microscopic observations that the wear in ceramic materials is related to brittle fracture and has two types of wear mechanisms, small scale wear and larvae scare wear. Plate-like wear debris were created from the initial surface cracks and defects. The small scale wear was related to real contact area and large scale wear was related to HertzJan contact area. A wear model was proposed on the basis of scanning electron microscopic observations.
