[Abstract]: This paper presents an experimental investigation to study
friction and interface temperature characteristics of chopped
strand mat fiberglass (type-R) reinforced polyester (CGRP)
sliding against smooth stainless steel. Pin-on-disk (POD)
apparatus is used to perform the experimental tests under dry
sliding condition at room temperature. Several parameters are
considered, namely load (30, 60 & 90N), sliding velocity (2.8,
3.52 & 3.9m/s) and sliding distance (0-2.51km). Three
different orientations of chopped strand mat with respect to
sliding direction, Parallel (P), Anti-parallel (AP) and Normal
orientations (N) are investigated. Continuous measurements of
friction forces using strain gauges, and interface temperatures
using infrared thermometer are performed. In addition,
Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) is used to study the
worn surface to verify the results. Experimental results show
that specimen’s orientations and the tested parameters play a
major role in controlling friction and interface temperature
characteristics of the CGRP/stainless steel. Maximum friction
coefficient was taken place in AP orientation at 3.5 m/s and
2.5km, which was about 0.6. Although, AP-orientation had
higher friction interface temperature in comparing to P and Norientations,
which was about 48oC at 3.9m/s and 2.5km.
