The science and technology of Interacting surfaces in relative motion & of associated subjects and practice is called Tribology. With the advancement of engineering applications, it’s important to understand the properties of clutch materials which can sustain the various working conditions. The tribological properties play an important role in the application of clutch materials.. Here the clutch enables to crank and start the eng ine disengaging the transmission Disengage the transmission and change the gear to alter the torque on the wheel. Friction material properties are important to clutch performance. When applying sliding force on a rotating friction surfaces heat will be gen erated and the surface temperature will increase this change in temperature will change the properties of the material too. Due to friction between mating part some part of friction material get wear out. The objectives of this research work were to inves tigate the effect of loads on friction and wear behavior of different clutch material discs under dry operating conditions and also to predict the nature of various clutch materials. We have conducted wear and friction analysis on the basis of load applied by using PIN - ON - DISK TEST METHOD. And wear rate can be used as a quantitative comparative value for wear resistance. The results showed that the Carbon Carbon clutch material is one of the best, with excellent gripping and less wear, as compared to other clutch material under test.
