Mechanical Behaviour of Al-6063 with SIC Composite Experimental Analysis

Abba Green


Abstract: The mechanical properties of materials can be increased with composite application. Reinforcement of Aluminium alloy can increase it value in aerospace, automobile, marine and construction industries. This study analysed the mechanical behaviour of reinforced aluminium alloy matrix with silicon carbide composite. The reinforced mechanical properties were examined at the ratio of 5 %, 7 % and 9 % silicon carbide particles. The effect of different weight percentage of silicon carbide on aluminium alloy composite was studied for Tensile strength, Hardness and Microstructure. It was observed that the Hardness & Tensile strength of the composites increased with increasing reinforcement element addition in it. The distribution of silicon carbide particles was uniform in aluminium.
