Abstract: Adding more than one reinforcement increases the flexibility in composites. The objective of the work is to develop a model to predict the compressive strength in an LM6 aluminium alloy reinforced with SiC and flyash particles. Central composite rotatable design had been employed to carry out the experiments with size and composition of the reinforcements as the parameters. ANN model developed has good prediction accuracy with error being less than 5%.
Keywords: LM6 Aluminium alloy, SiC, Flyash, Compressive Strength, ANN.
