This paper deals with parametric optimization of erosion wear of ZA-27 metal matrix composites (MMCs) reinforced with silicon carbide (SiC) particle in different weight proportions (0, 3, 6 and 9 wt %) using Taguchi experimental design. This technique is a powerful analysis tool for modeling and analyzing the influence of control factors on performance output. Erosion wear test are carried out following Taguchi's L16 orthogonal array. Significant control factors influencing the wear rate are identified. The analysis shows that among all the factors, impact velocity is the most significant factor followed by filler content while others has relatively less significance on wear rate of the particulate filled composites under this investigation. This work shows the optimization of different parameters effecting erosion wear of ZA-27 MMCs.
