Abstract
As a part of an investigation of the mechanisms of abrasive wear, the U.S. Bureau of Mines has made a further study of the proposed linear relationship between abrasion resistance and hardness for pure metals, using samples of known purity and grain size. Two different types of abrasive cloth were used for the tests and were found to have little effect on results. It is further demonstrated that abrasion resistance usually correlates better with the hardness of worn or otherwise work-hardened specimens than with the hardness of unworn, annealed specimens, and that the correlation improves when it is restricted to metals of the same crystal structure. The present results are in reasonable agreement with those of previous studies.
