Recalling that the overall intent of this work was to determine whether the imposition of a pulsed magnetic field can significantly affect material properties and hence tribological process behavior, the results developed are shown below and are
- hardness of untreated and magnetically treated washers
washer hardness after a series of treaments
washer hardness before and after running in a bearing with no applied field
washer hardness before and after running in a pulsed magnetic field
The term hardness is used loosely as what is reported is the directly measured hardness test indentation length - the major length of the diamond-shaped indentation.
- one treatment
- various hardness test loads
