The paper presents the results of tests carried out on Aluminium-SiliconCarbide composite by taking 15 percent of silicon carbide using Taguchi Technique. This experiment is conducted on this composite to successfully determined the optimum parameters for wear removal rate and coefficient of friction for 15% of SiC to the weight of the composite. In the experiment firstly input values are identified through which wear resistance and coefficient of friction optimum value comes, after identification the values are putting in the formula to find the theoretical calculated value and then experiment is being performed and confirmation test has been done to check whether the theoretical calculated value are experimentally feasible or not and after comparing given and calculated values. The aim of the experimental plan is to find the important factors and combination of factors influencing the wear process to achieve the minimum wear rate and coefficient of friction. The experiments were developed based on an orthogonal array, with the aim of relating the influence of sliding speed, applied load and sliding distance. These design parameters are distinct and intrinsic feature of the process that influence and determine the composite performance.
