Forecasting the Wear of Operating Parts in an Abrasive Soil Mass Using the Holm-Archard Model
AbstractThis paper presents the forecasting of the wear of working elements in an abrasive soil mass using the theoretical wear model. One of the widely used models providing a basis for the relationships describing wear is the Holm-Archard model. This relationship describes abrasive wear because of the contact between two bodies. The model assumes that the wear of an operating part is directly proportional to the sliding force and distance and inversely proportional to the hardness of the material of the part. To date, the model has not been verified in the wear of a soil mass, which is a discrete friction surface. Four grades of steel resistant to abrasive wear, intended for the manufacturing of operating parts exposed to wear within a soil mass, Hardox 500, XAR 600, TBL Plus and B27, were subjected to testing. TBL Plus steel was characterised by the smallest wear irrespective of the soil type. In turn, the highest values of the wear were noted in the light soil for Hardox 500, in the medium soil for XAR 600, while in the heavy soil for B27. Based on the obtained results, a high correlation coefficient was noted, with the highest values obtained for light and heavy soils. View Full-Text
