Dwivedi, U. K., Ghosh, A., and Chand, N. (2007). "Abrasive wear behaviour of bamboo (dendrocalamus strictus) powder filled polyester composites," BioRes. 2(4), 693-698.


An experimental study was conducted to determine the abrasive wear behaviour of different weight percentage bamboo powder filled polyester composites under the multipass mode. The effect of bamboo powder concentration and sliding distance on the weight loss of composites has been analyzed. Worn surface have been analyzed to observe the mechanism of wear. The weight loss depends on bamboo powder concentration. The weight loss decreases with the increase of sliding distance. Samples having 20 weight percentage (wt%) of bamboo powder show the maximum weight loss during abrasion.
