Abstract : The impact and rebound characteristics of high speed solid particles have been experimentally determined. This study was limited to a system where the particle material is much harder than the target material and thus erosion takes place at impact. The impact parameters were found to be statistical in nature and thus the statistical distributions were obtained. The effect of the particle velocity and impact angle was also investigated. In additon, the rebound data was related to the erosion damage. (Author)
