    Abstract :

    In this work, the erosive wear behavior of Polyetherimide (PEI) and its glass fiber (GF) reinforced composites was studied using silica sand particles at a different impact angles and impact velocities. The erosion rate of these composites has been evaluated at different impingement angles (15–90°) and impact velocities (25–66 m/s). The impingement angle was found to have a significant influence on erosion rate. Composite material showed ductile erosion behavior, with a maximum erosion rate at impingement angle of 30°. The morphology of eroded surfaces was examined by using scanning electron microscope (SEM). Possible erosive waer mechanisms were discussed.
