Abstract

Metal Matrix Composites (MMC) are characterized by lightweight, better specific strength and wear resistance properties. Due to their superior properties, MMCs have good potential for application in the automotive and aerospace industries. Among many types of MMCs, the most popular types are aluminum alloys reinforced with Al2O3 and MgO particulates since they provide favorable properties with only a minimum increase in density over the base alloy. The basic purpose of adding reinforcement into the metal matrix is to increase the yield strength, tensile strength, and hardness at ambient temperatures. Many of the components made out of MMCs are operated in applications, where they are subjected to relative sliding and rolling motion with respect to the surfaces of the mating components. The sliding wear of the composites is a complex process involving not only mechanical but also thermal and chemical interactions between the surfaces in contact. The Al 6061 Hybrid composites prepared by stir casting liquid metallurgy route with the percentage of 2% wt of Aluminium Oxide and 2% wt of Magnesium Oxide and the combination of 1% wt of Aluminium Oxide and 1% wt of Magnesium Oxide for Hybrid material. Hence, composites with Al2O3 and MgO with Al-6061 as reinforcement are likely to overcome the cost barrier as well as the different physical and mechanical properties for widely used in the automotive and spacecraft applications.
