The four types of abrasion are:
1. Adhesive Abrasion: Adhesive abrasion occurs when two surfaces slide or rub against each other, resulting in material transfer from one surface to another. It is commonly seen in situations where two materials with high surface adhesion come into contact and experience relative motion, leading to the transfer of material between them.
2. Abrasive Abrasion: Abrasive abrasion is caused by the presence of hard particles or abrasive substances that come in contact with a surface and cause wearing or removal of material through mechanical action. This type of abrasion is often encountered in situations involving the contact between a surface and abrasive materials such as sand, dirt, or grit.
3. Surface Fatigue Abrasion: Surface fatigue abrasion occurs due to repeated cycles of stress and strain on a material's surface. Over time, these cycles cause micro-cracks, which gradually propagate and lead to the formation of wear debris or the separation of surface layers. Surface fatigue abrasion is common in applications involving repeated loading and unloading, such as rolling or sliding contact.
4. Corrosive Abrasion: Corrosive abrasion is a combination of mechanical wear and chemical corrosion. It occurs when a surface is exposed to abrasive particles or corrosive agents, leading to the simultaneous degradation of the material through both mechanical and chemical processes. Corrosive abrasion is often observed in environments where abrasive particles, chemicals, or corrosive substances are present.
These four types of abrasion can occur individually or in combination, depending on the specific conditions and materials involved in a given application.
