Characterization and Fabrication of AZ31/SiC/Graphite Reinforced Metal Matrix Hybrid Composites by Stir Casting Method

Tankala Satya Prasad and Dr.Ch. Ratnam

The magnesium composites are increasingly mainstream in Automobile applications, because of its low mass thickness and mechanical properties. The current work expects to create AZ31 Mg-Alloy based composites strengthened with Silicon carbide (SiC) and graphite particulates with various rates by weight. Manufacture of composites is finished by vortex technique with a molecule size of 53 μm as support and weight part as 2 percent and 4 percent each. The adjustment in grain structure and the portion of SiC and graphite particles were painstakingly explored. The uniform circulation of strengthened particles builds the dendrite structure. The microstructure examination was done on base amalgam just as composites by utilizing SEM and EDAX. The properties like hardness, thickness, Young's modulus, and rigidity were assessed and revealed.
