The effect of high temperature on polycrystalline diamond

Abstract:

Polycrystalline diamond (PCD) is an important technological material used in the drilling of rock and the machining of high strength, non-ferrous alloys; composites and wood products. For these applications, no other material surpasses its cutting performance. However, PCD suffers from a degradation in its mechanical properties at the high temperatures caused by frictional heating that limits further advances in its capabilities. The literature presents two potential theories to explain this ...
