Abstract:   (2444 Views)
Aluminum matrix composites reinforced with Al2O3 and SiC particles (5 Vol%) were produced using the hot powder extrusion method. Extrusion temperature and extrusion reduction in area were chosen in the range of 500 to 600°C and 90 to 95%, respectively. The physical and mechanical properties of the extruded composites such as density, tensile strength, elongation and microhardness were evaluated and discussed as a function of extrusion parameters. The microstructure and fracture surface of the products were examined using SEM. The results showed that the composites were fully densified and reinforcement particles were distributed uniformly in the matrix. Presence of Al2O3 and SiC particles increased both strength and microhardness, but decreased the ductility of the composites. Experimental results for hot extrusion of the compacted powder billets also showed that the extrusion pressure was dependent on the ram speed or deformation strain rate.
