A typical composite material is a system of materials composing of two or more materials (mixed and bonded) on a macroscopic scale. Generally, a composite material is composed of reinforcement (fibres, particles, flakes, and/or fillers) embedded in a matrix (polymers, metals, or ceramics). The matrix holds the reinforcement to form the desired shape while the reinforcement improves the overall mechanical properties of the matrix. Addition of Al2O3 into carbon strands reinforced epoxy matrix improves the tribological properties of the matrix material. The basic aim of the research work is to develop and characterize a new class of composites by using Al2O3 filler with an epoxy matrix and carbon fiber as a reinforcing material. Attempt is made to use Al2O3 filler in this carbon fiber reinforced epoxy matrix composites and experiments are conducted in laboratory conditions. Three body wear test has been conducted using dry sand abrasion tester in accordance with ASTM G65 and erosive test had been conducted using air jet erosion tester in accordance with ASTM G 76. Steps involved in the research work.. ? Composite Processing-The fabrication of carbon fiber reinforced epoxy composites with and without Al2O3 as filler ? To analyze how the material behaves, when the different proportions of Al2O3 to carbon epoxy composites ? To investigate the wear properties of particulate filled carbon composites ? To investigate the erosion properties of particulate filled carbon composite at different impinging angles.
