The extents of contact coefficient are diverse for various material sets relying upon typical load and sliding speed. In the present research, grating coefficients and wear of glass fiber (GF) composite circles sliding against aluminum stick under vibration are explored and the outcomes were contrasted with a similar condition which is not in under vibration. So as to play out the tests, a stick on circle mechanical assembly is utilized. Tests are completed when aluminum stick slides on glass fiber (GF) plates of various organizations, for example, polyamide 6 (PA6), 20% GF and 15% GF. Examinations are led at ordinary load 2.5, 3.75 and 5N, sliding speed 0.5, 0.75 and 1 m/s. Varieties of erosion coefficient with the length of rubbing at diverse typical loads and sliding speeds are explored under vibration (vertical vibration). As a rule, contact coefficient expanded for a specific length of rubbing yet after that it stay steady for whatever remains of the test time. The trial result uncovers that contact coefficient diminished with the expansion in ordinary load for all the tried plates at steady speed and spring solidness. Then again, it is additionally found that grating coefficient diminished with the expansion in sliding speed however wear rate increments. Besides, both the friction coefficient and wear rate expanded with the expansion in spring firmness at consistent typical load and sliding speed for all sliding pairs. The contact coefficient is observed to be to some degree littler under vibration contrasted with that of vibration less condition.
