Effect of Orientation and Applied Load on Abrasive Wear Property of Brass 60:40
ABSTRACT
Wear is a continuous process in which material is degraded with every cycle. Scientists are busy in improving the wear resistance. Approximately 75% failure in components or machine parts is due to wear. The present paper investigates experimentally the effect of orientation and normal load on alloy of copper and zinc, i.e. Brass, and calculates weight loss due to wear. To do so, a multi-orientational pin-on-disc apparatus was designed and fabricated. Experiments were carried out under normal load 05-20 N, speed 2000 rpm. Results show that the with-increasing load weight loss increases at all angular positions. The loss in weight is maximum at zero degree (horizontal position) and minimum at ninety degree (vertical position) for a particular load. Maximum wear occurs when the test specimen is held at 0° angle and minimum wear occurs when the specimen is held at 90° angle for given applied load. The circumferential distance travel is constant for all positions and for all loads but still mass loss varies.
