Abstract:

In today’s industrial scenario, use of Metal Matrix composites for tribological applications have been increasing. In this regard, a study on MMC’s was carried out. The tribological behavior of MMC’s, including different types and amounts of filler materials were examined. Effects of operating parameters such as Load, Speed and Sliding distance on tribological performance of MMC’s were studied. Wear tests were performed on a pin-on-disc set up using plan of experiments based on Taguchi’s technique. Analysis of variance has been carried out to establish the relative significance of the individual factors on wear performance. An empirical relation between wear and operating parameters were established for all composite materials using linear regression analysis. The Load, Speed and sliding distance duration plays an important role on tribological performance of MMC’s. It was observed that MMC’s reinforced with Nano MgO, B4C and MoS2 could effectively improve the tribological performance.
