Tribological properties of carbon-reinforced epoxy composites - A review
AbstractTribology deals with interacting surfaces in sliding, rolling or any others types of motions, which is much importance in designing for machine components to improve their durabilityâ€™s of mechanical engineering systems. This study overviews the most recent studies on the tribological behavior of polymeric based materials containing different fillers. Some microstructural and mechanical properties of the epoxy composite are introduced. In addition, mechanisms of increasing wear resistance and reducing friction coefficient for polymeric composites are reviewed. An overview is also covered the process optimization for the dry wear results of polymeric composites using Taguchi Method (TM) and Response Surface Method (RSM). Furhermore, future use of the fiber reinforced composites in tribological applications is included in this study.
