Abstract : The study includes systematic surveys of the nickel and Ni-30 Cr wear surfaces using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Nondispersive x-ray analysis was used in conjunction with SEM to determine the qualitative chemical compositions of various features on the wear surfaces. Optical microscopy was used to examine metallographic samples of the wear track cross-section, and to preview the specimens for location of areas of particular interest.
