Paper Abstract

The multiple impact jet apparatus (MIJA) has generated a large amount of data on the damage inflicted on a material by high velocity liquid impact. The results presented in this paper include data on several protective coating systems, together with results from a study on the rain erosion resistance of natural and artificial diamond. Damage mechanisms resulting from liquid impact have been investigated by both high speed photography, and a video system for monitoring the extent of multiple impact damage. The results of these investigations also are discussed.
