A brand new test to assess erosive wear resistance

From this webinar you will learn

  • The importance of mechanical properties in erosion resistance
  • About the new randomised impact test
  • How it can be used to study erosion impact-by-impact
  • How to use it to develop more erosion resistant surfaces

About The Speakers

Prof. Ben Beake, Director of Materials Research, Micro Materials Ltd

After postdoctoral study at Hull, Nottingham and UMIST in 1999 Ben joined Micro Materials where he has been Director of Materials Research since 2006. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Mining and Minerals, a past Chairman of the Institute of Physics Tribology Group and is currently a Visiting Professor at Manchester Metropolitan University and at the Universities of Leeds and Huddersfield

He is very active in collaborative research with other NanoTest users (over 170 published papers), particularly in developing novel nano-mechanical test methods and applying them to study mechanical and tribological properties of thin films and coatings.
