|Abstract:||The aim of this work is to study the effect of cenosphere particulate on the tribological characteristics of glass fiber reinforced vinylester composites under dry and water lubricated sliding conditions. A synergistic effect is found for the combination of fiber and filler which lead to the improved tribological properties under dry and water lubricated sliding conditions. Effects of applied normal loads, sliding speeds and particle content on the tribological behaviour are also discussed. The experimental results show that the coefficient of friction and specific wear rate decrease with the increase in applied normal load and sliding speed. The experimental results also show that the composites exhibit lower coefficient of friction and lower wear resistance under water lubrication condition than under dry sliding. To validate the experimental data the morphologies of the worn surfaces are carried by means of scanning electron microscope (SEM).|
