Fused silica ceramic composite with combinations of Boron nitride and Silicon nitride were fabricated using gelcasting, a near net shape fabrication technique. Methylacrylamide (MAM) and N,N1-methylenebisacrylamide (MBAM) were used as monomers. A Mathematical model was developed to determine the effects of load, sliding distance and sliding speed on wear loss. The influence of these parameters are studied with the aid of Response surface methodology using central composite face centered design with six center points. The optimal values for minimum wear loss and parameters have been presented.
