The FRP composite bearings are ideal for high load, low speed applications or where normal lubrication is difficult or costly such as hydraulic cylinders, fork trucks, steering systems and In this work, the frictional sliding contact between a FRP composite half-plane and a rigid parabolic cylinder was analyzed.The influence of sliding direction, fiber and matrix material combinations, volume fraction of the fiber, frictional coefficient and fiber ply orientation on the contact pressure distribution and the contact area for unidirectional FRP composite bearings were evaluated. The finite element model was developed using ANSYS 10.0 and the FEM results were compared with the analytical results.
