The wear rate data of glass fiber reinforced polyethylene terephthalate (PET) has been analyzed statistically using the wear lifetime model together with the two-parameter Weibull distribution function. The specific wear rate versus normal load curve has been given a theoretical explanation, the empirical model being derived from the concepts of crack propagation and delamination physics.
