Erosion testing at NPL is concerned with both gas borne particulate erosion and water jet erosion testing.

The testing is combined with an analysis of how the damage that is developed varies with applied test condition and microstructural parameters.

This includes examination of the wear surfaces to determine the mechanisms of wear that occur.
