Wear is the important factor for various applications in automobile and aeronautical industries. Various researches are going on to improve the wear by either alloying the material or using the composite material. Wear is related to interactions between surfaces and more specifically the removal and deformation of material on a surface as a result of mechanical action of the opposite surface. The research work summarized in this thesis present an experimental investigation on the effect of abrasive wear rate of the material Al-6061 alloy on various load. The experiment was carried out in the laboratory using an experimental set up for the analyzing the wear rate of selected material. The experiment for analyzing the wear rate conducted on various load as well as various orientation against grinding disc. Here we study the working life of an engineering component is expired when dimensional losses exceed the specified tolerance limits. The abrasive wear behavior of selected material is analyzing at different loads and four different orientations. In the above paper I have analyzed the abrasive wear of selected material, which shows the estimated life of said material.
