Abstract

Abstract The friction and wear behavior of the graphite-fiber-reinforced glass matrix composite system is described. By reinforcing borosilicate glass with graphite fibers it has been possible to develop a composite whose friction coefficient and mechanical properties can be compared favorably with those of resin matrix composites and whose wear resistance and environmental stability can be comparable with those of glasses and ceramics. Both friction and wear results are described as a function of fiber elastic modulus, fiber orientation and test configuration for unlubricated sliding.
