Mechanical and Micro-Structural Characteristics of Al SiC Metal Matrix with TiO2 Nano Composites
In the current scenario, composite materials are given preference Al 6061 is reinforced with 5, 7, 9 wt.% of Silicon carbide (SiC) and 2 wt.% of nano TiO2 through liquid casting technique are compared with Aluminium alloy (AA) 6061 were reinforced with 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 10 wt.% of Silicon carbide (SiC). Al6061 matrix composite containing different volume fractions of SiC (230 grit size) and TiO2 (30–50 nm) is to be fabricated by stir casting technique to improve the ultimate tensile strength, yield strength, hardness and micro structural studies have been carried out to understand the nature of structure. The results indicated that the developed method was quite successful to obtain uniform dispersion of particle reinforcement material in the matrix of the alloy. The hardness, ultimate tensile strength, density, and yield strength were found to increase as the percentage of silicon carbide (SiC) reinforcement particles increased except for ductility that decreased with increase in the percentage of reinforcement particles.
