Mechanical Properties of Aluminium Matrix Nanocomposite Reinforced with Silicon Carbide

RafiullahAnsari, AkhtarHussain Ansari

The present study deals with the nano composite of aluminium matrix reinforced with silicon carbide particles of 50 nm size. Tensile strength and toughness of the composite is determined by tensile test. Specimens were prepared through stir casting route as per the ASTM b577 standard. Also the effect of pouring temperature and filler material content is studied on mechanical properties of aluminium composite and the results were analyzed by ANOVA. The results showed a negligible effect of pouring temperature on mechanical properties while composition has significant effect. An increase of 65 % in tensile strength and 101.5 % improvement in toughness is observed with filler content of 0.8 % and 0.6 % by weight consecutively.

Keywords: aluminium, composite, tensile strength, toughness, ANOVA
