Abstract: This paper focuses the Mechanical properties and tribological behaviour of aluminium (6063) metal which are reinforced with silicon carbide and graphite. Different percentages like7 %, 10%, 12% of silicon carbide and 3%, 5%, 8% of Graphite were added for reinforcement. The manufacturing of components is made by using stir casting method. Mechanical properties like (fatigue, impact, micro structure) and wear test are carried out in this paper. The result concluded that there is an increase in the mechanical and tribological properties with increase in weight percentage of reinforcement.
Keywords: Al6063, SiC, graphite, reinforced material matrix, stir casting.
Scope of the Article: Mechanical Maintenance.
