Abstract

In the current study, an investigation made on fabrication of B4C reinforced Al7020 alloy composites and evaluation of properties. Al7020-8 wt. % of B4C composites were synthesized by liquid stir casting process. Microstructural characterization was carried out by using scanning electron microscope and energy dispersive spectroscope. Prepared composites were evaluated for density, hardness and tensile strength as per ASTM standards. Scanning electron micro photographs revealed the distribution of B4C particulates in the Al matrix and were confirmed by EDX analysis. Further, density of Al7020-8 wt. % of B4C composites exhibited lesser density as compared to base alloy. B4C particulates reinforced composites were shown more enhanced properties as compared to A7020 alloy.
