Abstract

Metal matrix composites (MMCs) are a differing group of materials that comprise of metallic matrix normally reinforced with a ceramic phase as particles, platelets, whiskers, short fibers, and continuously allied fibers. MMCs are utilized as a part of structural applications and in applications requiring increased wear resistance, better thermal properties, and most of the cases in weight savings. 

In this work, it is intended to study the fracture toughness and hardness of aluminum matrix composites reinforced with Silicon Carbide (4%) and Graphite (8%) at single weight fraction. Processing of hybrid composite is done by the stir casting technique. Specimens are cut according to ASTM standard by using EDM wire cut machine.

From the fracture toughness we understand the increase in the thickness of the material the behavior of the material changes. From hardness test we understand that compared to base material hardness adding reinforcement the hardness of the material increases.

Keyphrases: Fracture toughness, Hardness, Metal Matrix Composites
