Abstract: This work is carried out to find out the erosion wear characteristics of unfilled and also SiC nanopowder filled flax and sisal fabric hybrid composites (FSHC). Effect of different parameters such as filler content, impingement angle and erodent size on the erosion wear behavior of hybrid composite has been studied using Taguchi method. Significant control factors altering the erosion rate have been evaluated through outstanding execution ANOVA. The experimental outcomes are recognized to be in acceptable accord with the assumptive values. This study indicates that erosion wear resistance increases as SiC nanopowder increases in FSHC.
