Alumina based specimens having different content of alumina based fibers were investigated for possible application as cavitation resistant material. Cavitation damages of the alumina based specimens were tested by the modified vibratory cavitation set up. Erosion rates were measured based on the method developed for metallic samples, mass loss was measured during the experiment. Surface erosion was determined during the experiment simultaneously to mass loss measurements. Image Pro Plus Program was applied for surface analysis during testing. Results indicate that investigated material exhibit excellent mechanical properties and very good resistance to cavitation erosion.
