Jatropha seed cake particulate (JSCP)-reinforced epoxy composites were prepared by open mold resin casting method. The influence of JSCP on mechanical and dry sliding wear properties of epoxy was experimentally investigated as per the ASTM standards. Dry sliding wear test was conducted for these composites at a constant sliding distance of 500 m with different sliding velocities and applied loads by a pin-on-disc wear test machine. The results revealed that incorporation of JSCP decreased the… Expand
