Mechanical and Tribological Behaviour of Chopped E-Glass Fiber-Reinforced Epoxy Composite Materials

Title variants
Languages of publication
Chopped E-glass fiber-reinforced epoxy composites (10%, 30% and 50%) were fabricated and their mechanical and tribological behaviour was investigated. Three-point bending tests were performed according to the ASTMD790 and tensile tests were performed according to the ASTMD638 standards. Impact tests and hardness measurements of the composites were also carried out. Wear behaviour of composites was studied using pin on disc wear testing device. The design of experiments approach, using Taguchi method, was employed to analyze the results. Signal-to-noise ratio and analysis of variance were used to determine the influence of parameters on the wear rate and coefficient of friction.
