Abstract

The synthesis and characterization of a wide range of Aluminum based composites has continued to generate a lot of interest in the area of materials science due to the versatile applications of Al based composites that have been successfully utilized in huge prospects of many new applications. In the present study we have discussed about the influence of volume rate (vol. %) of nano-sized particles (TiC: normal size is 50 nm) on microstructure and mechanical conduct of Al 6061-T6 nano surface composite arranged by means of Friction stir process (FSP). The microstructure of the created surface nano composites is inspected utilizing optical microscopy (OM) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) for distribution of TiC nano strengthening particles on the Aluminum alloy substrate and fracture features. The wear test is conducted on Pin on disk tribometer. The disc material used was SAE 1050 steel and conducted at a disc rotational of speed 650 rpm, sliding speed of 3.4 m/s and at a normal load of 40 N. Coefficient of friction values, temperature changes and wear of the specimens were tabulated according to the above mentioned working conditions. Hardness and weight losses of the specimens were calculated. The obtained results demonstrate the wear properties of these samples that have changed with the wt% addition of Titanium carbide to the base metal aluminium.
