Abstract

Aluminum matrix composites (AMCs) is used in manufacturing of different parts because they have higher strength to weight ratio, High wear resistance, Good dimensional stability, Higher cyclic fatigue characteristics. AMCs are very useful in aerospace, marine and automotive applications. In present experimental investigation aluminum alloy 6061 is used as a metal matrix and SiC particles are used as reinforcement. The AMCs are fabricated using electromagnetic stir casting process by varying SiC (0%, 3%, 6% and 9% wt.) percentage. The tensile strength, flexural strength and hardness test were carried out. There was increase in tensile strength, flexural strength and hardness with increase in percentage of SiC in composite

Key Words
