An Investigation on the Mechanical Properties of Nano-Al2O3 and TiC Reinforced Aluminum Matrix Hybrid Composites
Over the last two decades, the use of Al 6061 alloy with different materials as a Metal Matrix Composites has huge outcomes with required properties. In this speculation Al alloy (Al 6061) as the base material, Alumina nano Al2O3 (20 to 30 nm) at 5% weightage and titanium carbide TiC (2 microns) at different weights from 0 to 3.5%. In the present work, an attempt is made to fabricate Al 6061 hybrid composites. The composites were prepared using stir casting method the prepared composites are subjected to micro structural studies and mechanical properties of the composites were evaluated as per the ASTM standards. The micrographs of the composites revealed the fair distribution of the particles in composites with clustering in few places. The dispersed Al2O3 and TiC in Al 6061 alloy contributed in enhancing the flexural and impact strength of the composites. The scanning electron micrographs of the samples indicated the uniform distribution of the reinforcement particles in the matrix without any voids.
