The tribological behavior of glass fiber reinforced vinylester composites filled with fly ashparticulates were studied using a pin-on-disc wear apparatus under dry sliding conditions. Theinfluence of friction and wear parameters like pv factor, sliding distance and percentage offiller content, on the friction and sliding wear rate were investigated. A plan of experiments,based on the Taguchi technique, was performed to acquire data in a controlled way. Anorthogonal array and analysis of variance ANOVA were applied to investigate theinfluence of process parameters on the coefficient of friction and sliding wear behaviour ofthese composites. The Taguchi design of experiment approach eliminates the need for repeatedexperiments and thus saves time, material and cost. Taguchi approach identifies not only thesignificant control factors but also their interactions influencing the coefficient of friction andspecific wear rate predominantly. The results showed that the inclusion of fly ash as fillermaterials in glass vinylester composites decreases the coefficient of friction and increases thewear resistance of the glass vinylester composites significantly.
