Journal Article
Ratia, V., Zhang, D., Daure, J., Shipway, P., McCartney, D., & Stewart, D. (in press). Sliding wear of a self-mated thermally sprayed chromium oxide coating in a simulated PWR water environment. Wear,

Bearing surfaces in the primary circuit of pressurized water reactors (PWR) are prone to damage due to aggressive chemical and tribological conditions under which they operate, and a wide range of materials have been examined in this regard. One of t... Read More

The effect of temperature on sliding wear of self-mated HIPed Stellite 6 in a simulated PWR water environment (2018)
Journal Article
Ratia, V., Zhang, D., Carrington, M., Daure, J., McCartney, D., Shipway, P., & Stewart, D. (2019). The effect of temperature on sliding wear of self-mated HIPed Stellite 6 in a simulated PWR water environment. Wear, 420-421, 215-225. doi:10.1016/j.wear.2018.09.012

Cobalt-based Stellite alloys are widely used in the primary circuit of pressurized water reactors (PWR) to protect valve surfaces against wear and galling in a corrosive environment. In this study, self-mated sliding wear of HIP-consolidated (Hot Iso... Read More
