Erosive and Abrasive Wear contains fully peer-reviewed papers presented at the Ninth International Conference on erosion by liquid and solid impact formerly known as ELSI and now parading under the five initials of ICEAW (International Conference on Erosion, Abrasion and Wear) so as to reflect the growing interest in the scientific community in abrasion. ICEAW was held at Churchill College, Cambridge, England from the 13th to the 17th September 1998.
ICEAW is the latest in a series of meetings which started in 1965 with a meeting devoted to the topic of rain erosion. Three more conferences were held through the 1960s and 70s, with their coverage progressively broadening to include other types of erosion damage by solid particles and by cavitation. In 1979 the first ELSI conference (International Conference on Erosion by Liquid and Solid Impact) was held.
1979 also marked the first in a series of four conferences sponsored in part by EPRI, the Electric Power Research Institute of Palo Alto. These meetings, although focused on erosion-corrosion at high temperatures with particular reference to the problems of the power generation industry, also attracted contributions on other aspects of erosive wear.
ICEAW followed a distinguished series of highly successful earlier meetings on erosion and was successful in attracting many delegates who did contribute papers on the closely-related topic of abrasive wear.
More than 100 papers were presented either orally or as posters and authors were invited to contribute their papers for publication.
As well as being published in a book these proceedings have been published as a special issue of the journal Wear, volumes 233-235.
