Dry Sliding Wear Behaviour of Al-Si-Ti Alloys Using Taguchi Method

Ganpat B. Jambukar | Dr. Y. R. Kharde


Abstract: The present study deals with investigation relating to the influence of wear parameters like sliding speed, applied load and sliding distance on the dry sliding wear of aluminium silicon titanium alloys. The design of experiment approach was employed to acquire data in controlled way using Taguchi method. A pin-on-disc apparatus was used to conduct the dry sliding wear test. An orthogonal array, signal-to-noise ratio and analysis of variance were employed to investigate the wear behavior of aluminium and its alloys. The mathematical model was obtained to determine the wear rate of the aluminium and its alloys. Addition of titanium in aluminium silicon alloys modifies microstructure as well improves the tribological characteristics.
