Micro-scratching tests of a rolled aluminium alloy AA2024-T351 thick plate using a diamond micro-blade

Abstract : The present research work is focused on investigating the apparent coefficient of abrasive friction of a rolled thick plate of an AA2024-T351 aluminium alloy, using micro-scratch tests. For this study, specific materials specimens and a particular UMT Micro-Scratch Equipment were used. The test involved the generation of a scratch process at a local scale using a diamond stylus (micro-blade defined by a radius of 0.8 μm) moving along a specified path under a constant normal force (10 N) and with a constant speed (0.2 mm/s). For the characterization of the surface quality, two orthogonal directions were considered: the longitudinal one, along the rolling direction, and the corresponding transversal one. Given the fractal nature of the surface, an investigation was done in order to assess its influence on the coefficient of abrasive friction. The fractal dimension Df, one of the most important parameters in a fractal surface analysis, was used to determine this influence in the global friction and abrasion phenomena. The abrasion factor was calculated using the Zum Gahr method for the data obtained with a specialized Mitutoyo SJ-301 surface tester. Measurements were made at the beginning, middle and at the end of the scratch channel. The obtained value for the abrasion factor was slightly less than zero. Other influences of anisotropic material features on global abrasion effects were also analyzed via comparisons of the coefficients of abrasive friction for both static and kinematic conditions.
