Topic : A Study on Mechanical Properties of Aluminium Alloy (LM6) Reinforced with Al2O3

Authors:Samant Gaurish Mahabaleshwar || Dr Krupashankara M S, Dr Mahesh B Parappagoudar

Abstract:A phrase heard often in recent years, advanced composite materials like Al/Al2O3 metal matrix composite is gradually becoming very important materials in industries due to their superior properties. The present study examines the mechanical properties of aluminum (LM6)/ Al2O3 reinforced particles metal-matrix composites (MMCs) by varying weight fractions of Al2O3. For this (LM6)/ Al2O3 reinforced particles MMCs are fabricated by stir casting method at air atmosphere . The MMCs are prepared in the form of bars with varying the reinforced particles by weight fraction ranging from 3 %, 5 % and 7 %. The reinforced particles size of Al2O3 is varying between 25-40 microns. The Mechanical properties like, Brinell Hardness, Rockwell hardness & Wear test are investigated on prepared specimens of MMCs. It was observed that the hardness of the composite is increased gradually from 5 % to 7%..

Keywords: Aluminium, SiC, Metal Matrix Composite, stir casting, weight fraction.
