Friction and wear properties of nano-Si3N4/nano-SiC composite were studied under nanolubricated conditions. Mineral oil mixed with nanoparticles of diamond was used as lubricant. A friction coefficient of 0.043 and a wear coefficient of 4.2×10-7 were obtained for nano-Si3N4/nano-SiC composite under normal load of 600 N with mineral oil + 0.5 wt% nanodiamond, whereas a friction coefficient of 0.077 and a wear coefficient of 10.3×10-7 were obtained for nano-Si3N4/nano-SiC composite under normal load of 600 N with mineral oil. 3D surface profilometer was used to study the surface morphology of wear scars. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies were conducted to illustrate reduction in friction and wear.
