Damage modelling of scratch abrasion resistance

Quasi-static fracture and damage mechanics - Dhanraj Rajaraman

Abrasion wear of metals is a major failure mode in many engineering applications, leading to huge expenditures on maintenance. The aim of this project is to increase the fundamental understanding of damage mechanisms involved in scratch abrasion by means of devoted numerical damage modelling and experimental validation testing. The outcome of this project will lead to an identification and prioritization of material parameters of influence on scratch abrasion resistance.
