Aluminium Metal Matrix Composite Reinforced With Glass Particulates | Original Article
In the present work an effort has been made to prepare Al6061-Glass particulate metal matrix composite with different weight percent of reinforcements (3%, 6%, 9%, and 12%) through stir casting technique. The homogeneous dispersion of the composite and reinforced particles distribution were study by optical microscopy and XRD. The fabricated composite specimens were subjected to mechanical testing to evaluate the mechanical properties such as hardness and tensile strength using Vickers hardness and universal tensile testing instrument. It was observed from the results that the hardness increase with increase in wt% of reinforcement up to 9wt% and decreased for 12wt%. Tensile strength increased with increase in wt% of reinforcement particle up to 9wt% and decreased for 12wt%.
