Summary

Ball-on-disc friction and wear tests were performed with PSZ zirconia, Si3N4, and SiC ceramics and TiC cemented-carbide pairs under oscillating and linear sliding tests at 650°C in air and load conditions representative of advanced power systems. These tests showed high friction and wear of ceramic pairs at 650°C; improved performance was achieved coupling ceramics to TiC, and with TiC pairs. A review of practical lubrication systems for tribological engine components of high temperature materials showed that these exist and include solid lubrication, powder in gaseous carriers, and gas film support.
