A survey is presented of the experimental work which has been carried out on the abrasive wear of metals. The effect of variables such as surface hardness, abrasive hardness, abrasive particle size, and velocity are discussed for several types of abrasive wear. The similarities between different types of wear are described with the viewpoint of using one type of wear test to rank materials for another application.
