Abstract: The purpose of adding Carbon nanotubes (CNT) to metal is to obtain excellent atomic structure and material properties. The strength, wear and corrosion resistance was improved when the addition of carbon nanotubes to the silicon metal. A uniform mixing of carbon nanotubes were achieved by molecular level mixing through the Spark plasma sintering (SPS) process. The interfacial bonding strength is also improved by this process. The material properties and wear properties were also studied. The most influential factor was found by analysis of variance during wear behavior experiment. The deflection test was also conducted under various load conditions.
