Abstract

Aluminium metal matrix composites (MMCs) have gained importance in all the field of engineering application. Aluminium has a favourable strength to weight ratio, and compared to other materials used in bicycle and automotive industries. In this project work, composites were fabricated by using squeeze casting method. Aluminium 6013 alloy as matrix material and 15% SiC as reinforcing material. The mechanical properties of aluminium alloys are highly improved by adding SiC particles as reinforcement. From the investigation the various squeeze casting parameters of composite materials samples has been subjected to find the mechanical properties such as hardness, tensile and wear test. Experiments were conducted on response surface methodology by varying the input squeeze casting parameters. The experimental results showed that squeeze pressure is most influence factor on Tensile strength, hardness and wear resistance
