steels were subjected to crushing pin-on-disc (CPOD) and slurry-pot wear tests, offering reasonably high-stress abrasive and impact-abrasive conditions, respectively. The results showed that the best performer in both studied wear conditions is the martensitic steel due to its higher initial hardness. Nevertheless, the performance benefit of this steel was of lesser magnitude in the slurry-pot than in the CPOD tests. On the other hand, the TRIP steel showed poor ranking in the CPOD tests but outperformed the QP and lower bainite steels in the slurry-pot tests. Detailed surface and subsurface wear damage investigations were conducted to study the wear responses of the microstructural constituents of the steels to explain their wear behavior in different wear conditions.
