Effect on Mechanical Properties of Aluminum Composites by Inclusion of Silicon Carbide
In this paper, the mechanical properties of new composite material aluminum with silicon carbide were analyzed. The composite with various proportions of silicon carbide (2, 4 and 6%) with aluminum 2017 was prepared by stir casting process. For the analysis of mechanical properties for aluminum composite included by silicon carbide, the hardness test, impact tests and tensile tests were conducted. The results showed that the inclusion of silicon carbide particles increased the hardness and impact strength of the composites. It was also found that only small amount of increment was found in all results. From this, it was clearly known that if the increase in % of silicon carbide inclusion increases mechanical properties of aluminum composite for a certain level.
