8 pagesDate: May 15, 2022


Aluminium alloys are widely used in aerospace and automobile industries due to their low density and good mechanical properties, better corrosion resistance and wear, low thermal coefficient of expansion as compared to conventional metals and alloys. The excellent mechanical properties of these materials and relatively low production cost make them a very attractive candidate for a variety of applications both from scientific and technological viewpoints. The aim involved in designing metal composite materials is to combine the desirable attributes of metals and ceramics.Present work is focused on the study of behavior of Aluminium alloy (Al 6061) with SiC and Gr composite produced by the stir casting technique. Al 6061 alloy is taken as base material and then it is reinforced with silicon carbide (SiC) and Graphite (Gr). After preparation of suitable samples, tensile test and hardness test were performed and results were analyzed. At last, a comparison is made between the mechanical properties of base aluminium alloy and the prepared aluminium metal matrix composites.
