TL;DR: In this article, the structural and mechanical properties of these composites are evaluated and compared with those of a similar set of glass-epoxy composites under similar test conditions available in the published literature, and a methodology based on Taguchi's experimental design approach is employed to make a parametric analysis of erosion wear process.

TL;DR: The solid particle erosion behavior of polymers and polymeric composites has been reviewed in this paper, where the effects of testing variables (e.g., erodent type, size and flux, impact angle) and target material characteristics (i.e., crystallinity, crosslink density, reinforcement content and arrangement) were paid attention to.
Abstract: The solid particle erosion behaviour of polymers and polymeric composites has been reviewed. Attention was paid to the effects of testing variables (e.g., erodent type, size and flux, impact angle) and target material characteristics (e.g., crystallinity, crosslink density, reinforcement content and arrangement). The occurring failure mechanisms were classified and discussed. Various predictions and models proposed to describe the erosion rate (ER) were listed and their suitability was checked. Recommendations were given how to solve some open questions related to the structure—erosion resistance relationships for polymers and polymeric composites.

TL;DR: In this article, a method for determining the velocity of solid particles in a gas-particulate stream applied to erosion testing of materials is described, where a simple mechanical configuration allows the measurement to be made under a wide range of equipment conditions.

TL;DR: In this article, the effects of velocity and dust characteristics on sand erosion are summarised and new data presented, which leads to the suggestion that impacting particles initially cause pitting and extrusion and may break into fragments which cause secondary damage in directions radial to the point of initial impact.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors studied the sand erosion behavior of a wide variety of metals and plastics in an air blast rig and found that the softer materials can exhibit an incubation period prior to stabilising to a linear erosion rate.

TL;DR: In this article, a new theoretical model is proposed for the erosion of metals by particles at normal incidence, which employs a criterion of critical plastic strain to determine when the material will be removed, defined as the strain at which the deformation in the target localizes and hence results in the lip formation.
