Experimental Investigation of Aluminium Metal Matrix Composite Reinforced with Aloe Vera Powder
Uppada Sasikala | Dr. Kalapala Prasad
Abstract: In this project investigation is carried out on aluminium reinforced with aloe vera powder and aluminium reinforced with fly ash. Aluminium, Aloe vera and fly ash commercially available in required manner to design a specimen. These materials heated up to critical temperature to obtain molten state. Further solidify the molten metal to desired geometrical shape by using stir casting process. Each specimen will be subjected to analyze vibration parameters namely natural frequency and mode shapes using ANSYS. Presently limited number of scientific researches are done on aluminium reinforced with aloe vera powder which provides wider area to study. Aloe vera gave better result than fly ash as reinforcement. The final stage of this work is to investigate natural frequency of concern specimen to minimize the vibration.
