HARDNESS AND ELASTICITY OF ABRASIVE PARTICLES MEASURED BY INSTRUMENTED INDENTATION

Abstract

Basic mechanical properties of seven types (from seven different sites) of abrasive garnet particles used for water jet cutting were measured using the technique of instrumented indentation (also called depth sensing indentation or nanoindentation). Hardness and modulus of elasticity were evaluated and compared. All the abrasives had similar measured mechanical properties (hardness 20 - 24.16 GPa), the highest values were found for the Czech garnet.
