In this paper, an experimental study has been conducted to determine wear and friction behaviours of (agro based cellulose) corn husk polyester composites. chemical constituents are found in corn husk are (cellulose 43%, hemi-cellulose 31%, lignin 22%, and ash 1.9,In this study corn husk fibre were extracted from corn husk by alkaline treatment (0.5N NaOH). %). alkline treatment has been conducted due to lack of adhesion between fibre and matrix material. Composite materials were prepared by hand lay-up techniques, after that wear and friction measure were conducted on POD machine, taguchi analysis was used to optimize wear and friction of composite material by using L16 orthogonal array, by using anova smallest the better s/n ratio gives best set value, which gives good wear resistance and coefficient of friction.
