    Abstract

    One of the next steps in experimental material erosion investigation is the testing at high temperatures comparable to those found inside a jet engine. Described in this paper is the design of the high-temperature erosion facility at the University of Cincinnati. This facility has the capability of providing between ambient and a 1093°C (2000°F) environment temperature for erosion testing of various materials. In addition, this facility has the capability for varying material, specimen size, angle to the flow, particle concentration, particle size, and velocity. This facility is expected to provide basic material erosion data which will be used in predicting erosion in jet engines and other devices.
