J. Tribol 139(3), 032301 (Nov 30, 2016) (6 pages) Paper No: TRIB-16-1086; doi: 10.1115/1.4034381 History: Received March 14, 2016; Revised July 20, 2016

In the present work, the image features of cavitation erosion surfaces at different temperatures are extracted using wavelet decomposition transform. The results obtained indicate that the extract parameters, wavelet energy, and entropy can characterize the cavitation intensity in a similar manner to that of the mass loss and average particle size at different temperatures. Based on the analysis of the eroded surface and particle morphologies for different temperatures, it was found that the predominant failure mode was fatigue.
