Abstract : There is a growing demand for the development of new polymer matrix composite materials that exhibits high strength, high wear resistance, good rigidity and less weight. In this work, an attempt has been made to develop a novel carbon fibre reinforcement polymer (CFRP) composite with stainless steel (SS 316) wire mesh and to investigate its tribological characteristics with the objective of improving the wear resistance. The pin-on-disc experiment was performed on the fabricated CFRP-SS316 fibre metal laminate by using EN31 steel (high carbon alloy) pins. Wear rate and coefficient of friction have been examined by conducting four experiments on CFRP-SS316 laminate. The process parameters used for this investigation includes applied load, sliding velocity, sliding distance and speed. Experimental results showed that the wear rate increases on a CFRP-SS316 disc laminate when the load increases gradually from 10 N to 40 N. The minimum wear rate of 16.34 mm3/N was obtained for 10 N applied load.
