Abstract. Tribological behavior of diamond-reinforced Fe-Co composites was studied. SN ratio and
ANOVA were employed to investigate the influence of parameters like, abrasive size, load, distance and
hardness. The load factor was the major parameter, followed by abrasive size. The percent contributions
are abrasive size (32.17 %), hardness (11.30 %).
