Abstract:   (14040 Views)
In the current study, effect of varying Silicon Carbide particulate on the mechanical properties of Aluminium based alloy automobile brake disc component was investigated. The result of experimental investigation on mechanical properties of Silicon Carbide particle reinforced Aluminium Matrix was achieved for composite brake disc using universal tensile test machine, Rockwell hardness testing machine and numerical/theoretical model. The influence  of reinforced ratio of  5,  10, 15 20, and 25  weight  percentage  of  Silicon  Carbide particles on  mechanical properties was  examined. Aluminium Metal Matrix Composites containing, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25   weight percentages of reinforcement Particles was obtained using Stir-Casting method. The result obtained showed that highest Yield Strength (350.64MPa), Modulus of Rigidity (6137.4MPa), and Hardness (76.5Kg/mm2) was obtained on 25wt%SiC (190μm) particle reinforcements.
