Abstract

The purpose of this work has been to model the erosion of a metal matrix composite, by considering threshold criteria for erosion of the ductile and brittle phases of the composite, Figs. 1-2, in the composite, Fig. 3. In the literature, there has been some confusion on the effect of increasing reinforcement on the erosion of metal matrix composites MMCs [1-5]. Such effects are discussed in the context of the analysis of the model below and various trends observed for the solid particle erosion of metals and ceramics.
