Development of Functionally Graded Metal Composite (LM25-SiC) Using Centrifugal Casting Process and their Characterisation

11 pagesPublished: August 5, 2017

Abstract

The research work includes development of vertical centrifugal casting set-up for functionally graded metal composite (LM25-SiC) preparation. Material parameters like wt % of SiC Particles (2, 3.5, and 5%), average grain size of SiC particles (75, 44, and 6.5 μm) and process parameter like rotational speed of the mould (1000, 1100, 1200 RPM) are selected for characterization. Samples were tested for hardness and wear resistance to investigate the effect parameters on change of properties. Microstructure analysis was also performed. Total 11 FGM samples were made by varying different process parameters. It is found that hardness and wear resistant property improves with increase in wt% of SiC particles and mould rotation speed. It is also found that hardness and wear resistance value increases with reduction of average grain size of SiC particles. Increased mould rotation speed improves the level of distribution of reinforcing particles from inner to outer region.

Keyphrases: centrifugal casting, FGM, FGM characterisation, LM25-SiC, process parameters
