    Abstract

    Correlations of erosion resistances of materials tested in different equipment are reported. Analysis of the authors' data from rotating disk and venturi equipment indicates that there exists a good correlation between the erosion resistances of materials tested at different intensities. The study indicates that time effects on erosion are important in correlations of this type. The erosion resistances of materials tested in two different devices exhibit good correlations indicating a quantitative similarity between different forms of erosion. The investigations also show that the prediction of erosion resistances of materials in a field device may be made with the data from a laboratory device which may not fully reproduce the flow conditions in the field. These conclusions are also checked with data reported from other laboratories.
