    Author(s): Singh RK, Kumar D and Kumar ASingh RK, Kumar D and Kumar A

    Aluminium Metal Matrix composites is a relatively attractive material for automobile, aerospace and other engineering application due to its mechanical and tribological properties. To improve wear resistance and mechanical properties has led to design and selection of newer variants of the composite. The present investigation deal with the study of wear behavior of Al-SiC-Cu MMCs for varying reinforcement content, applied load, sliding speed, and distance. Aluminium MMCs reinforced with three different percentage of reinforcement 3, 6, 9% wt. SiC and 0.5, 0.75, 1.00% wt. Cu prepared by stir casting method. Wear test was performed by using “pin on disk” apparatus. A plan of experiment based on L27 Taguchi orthogonal array is used to acquire the wear data. An analysis of variance is employed to investigate the influence of four controlling parameters, SiC content, Normal loa.. Read More»
