Abstract:The work described in this thesis is about wear and friction of zirconia and alumina ceramics and composites of zirconia and alumina. Tribological properties are system properties that can only be studied for given combinations of materials and operating conditions. The tribological properties of ceramics, however, are particularly influenced by the homogeneity of the ceramic microstructure. Important parameters of that are porosity, grain size and possibly phase dispersion homogeneity of composites. In this thesis mainly attention was paid to the preparation of ceramic systems, as homogeneous as possible and the influence of homogeneity on tribological properties.
