Wear Property of Metal Matrix Composite

Kumar, Avinash and Singh, Satyajeet (2011) Wear Property of Metal Matrix Composite. BTech thesis.



The purpose of this paper was to study the wear property of Cu-SiC composite manufactured by powder metallurgy route with varying compositions and sintering temperatures. 12 different samples (SiC compositions 0, 5, 10 and 15 Vol.%) of the composite were made by mixing, cold pressing and sintering at three different temperatures (700, 775 and 850 oC). The change in densities and hardness values were noted and studied. Then XRD and SEM analysis of the samples were done to study the phases present and their distributions along with idea of composition. Hardness and wear studies were carried out to judge the surface mechanical properties of the composites prepared. Wear mechanism was also studied using the scanning electron microscope.
