Chopped carbon fiber-reinforced epoxy composites were fabricated and tested for tribological behaviour. Wear behaviour of composites was studied using pin-on-disc wear tester device. The design of experiment, using Taguchi method, was employed to analyse the results. Signal to noise ratio and analysis of variance (ANOVA) were used to determine the influence of parameters on the wear rate and coefficient of friction.
