Tribological and thermal characterization of glass fiber - A Review


This present paper reviews about thermal and wear behavior of glass fiber Reinforced composites. It involves the effect of different fiber length, volume fractions of fibers that impregnated with various polymer matrixes. Scanning electron microscopy describes worm surface of glass fiber reinforced composites and bonding between fiber and matrix phase. Keywords: Glass fiber, Tribological, Thermal behavior and scanning electron microscopy.
