Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


The erosion behavior of selected polymers and fiber plastic composites (FPC) was analyzed to establish the correlations between material and wear properties. The erosion behavior of plastics and fibre-reinforced composites (FRC) was found to be characterised by different wear mechanisms. The plastics undergo ductile failure while the fiber reinforced composites (FRC) tend towards a brittle behavior.
