The E-glass woven fabric-epoxy (LY 556) (GE) composites have been fabricated with varying amounts of silicon oxide (SiO2) particulate filler viz., 3, 6 and 9 wt % by compression molding followed by hot curing. The fabricated composites were characterized by mechanical properties such as tensile behaviour, flexural behaviour and interlaminar shear strength (ILSS). The effect of silica content on the sliding wear properties such as wear loss, specific wear rate and coefficient of friction of GE… Expand
