Mercer, AP and Hutchings, IM (1985) INFLUENCE OF ATMOSPHERIC HUMIDITY ON THE ABRASIVE WEAR OF METALS. Wear of Materials: International Conference on Wear of Materials. pp. 332-337. ISSN 0192-4990Full text not available from this repository.
A pin-on-disc apparatus has been used to obtain continuous simultaneous measurements of the wear and friction (sliding force) behaviour of metals on bonded silicon carbide abrasive paper under conditions of controlled humidity. Iron, mild steel, and copper exhibit qualitatively similar wear behaviour; the wear rate decreases progressively with the number of passes over the same track. In contrast, the wear rate of titanium remains constant. Variation in atmospheric humidity has little effect on the wear rates of copper or titanium, although a slight effect was found in mild steel and iron. Refs.
