Title:
PROCESSING OF ALUMINIUM METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES (AMMC) THROUGH STIR CASTING ROUTE
Author Name:
R.Kumar, J.Jegan, L.Initha
Abstract:
ABSTRACT Composite material is a combination of two or more materials having compositional variations and depicting properties distinctively different from those of the individual materials of the composite. During the past decade, considerable research effort has been directed towards the development of in situ Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs), in which the reinforcements are formed in situ by exothermal reactions between elements or between elements and compounds. Using this approach, MMCs with a wide range of matrix materials (including aluminum, titanium, copper, nickel and iron), and second-phase particles (including borides, carbides, nitrides, oxides and their mixtures) have been produced. In the present work, the elemental TiC powders are mixed with aluminum molten metal to produce the Al-TiC MMC. The proposed investigation is to deal with development of aluminium based composite through casting route. Synthesis, characterization, hardness and tensile strength are proposed to be investigated. By its improved mechanical characteristics the new material is expected to replace existing composites applicable to light weight structural and automotive industries. KEYWORDS: - Composites, Aluminium, Metal Matrix Composites, Stir casting, SEM and XRD
