Chopped bamboo-reinforced epoxy composites were fabricated and tested to investigate their tribological properties. Three different weight fractions of 6%, 8% and 10% were used as reinforcement in the composites. Wear behaviour of composites was investigated by pin on disc wear testing device. To analyse the results the design of experiments (DOE) approach by using the Taguchi method was employed. Three different parameters (load, sliding speed, weight fractions) with three levels were chosen in design of experiments. Signal to noise ratio and analysis of variance (ANOVA) were used to investigate the influence of parameters on the wear rate and the coefficient of friction. According to the results, load was the most effective parameter for both wear rate and coefficient of friction.
