|Abrasive wear behavior of granite-filled glass-epoxy composites by SiC particles using statistical analysis
|Polymer - Plastics Technology and Engineering, 2011, Vol.50, 5, pp.516-524
|This experimental investigation deals with the evaluation of abrasive wear behavior of Glass Epoxy (G-E) composites on pin-ondisc test rig. A plan of experiments, based on the Taguchi Design of Experiments, was performed to acquire data in controlled way. An orthogonal array and the analysis of variance were employed to investigate the percentage of contribution of various process parameters like sliding speed, applied load, sliding distance and their interactions affecting the abrasive wear volume loss of composites. The correlations between the various factors affecting the abrasive wear behavior of composites were obtained by using multiple linear regression equations. The obtained results indicate that applied load and sliding distance were the wear factors that have the highest physical as well as statistical influence on the abrasive wear behavior of both filled and unfilled G-E composites. A good agreement between the predicted and actual wear resistance was observed within 12%. Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
