Erosion Efficiency and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) of Textile Material Reinforced Polymer Composites Sachin Tejyan Department of Mechanical Engineering, Maharaja Agrasen University, Baddi (H.P.) - India tejyan86@gmail.com Amit Singla Department of Mechanical Engineering, Maharaja Agrasen University, Baddi (H.P.) - India Abstract-- The objective of this paper is to demonstrate the usefulness of the erosion efficiency by considering the large body of data in the literature pertaining to the solid particle erosion of polymer composites under normal impact conditions and to identify various mechanisms in solid particle erosion. Eroded surfaces of composite samples were also examined by scanning electron microscopic (SEM) to see the effect of impact velocity and impingement angle on the surface of composites. Index Terms-- Textile Fabric, Epoxy, Solid Particle Erosion, Erosion Efficiency. INTRODUCTION The most common advanced composites are polymer matrix composites consisting of a polymer reinforced by different types of fibers. Fiber reinforced polymer composites consist of strong and stiff fibers embedded in a matrix. Compared with traditional materials, they offer superior durability, light weight, and mechanical properties. Polymer composites are being increasingly used in various applications including aerospace, transportation, industrial and household applications. Like other materials, the selection and design of a polymer composite structure must take
