Preparation, Characterization and Mechanical Properties of Al356.1 Aluminium Alloy Matrix Composites Reinforced With MgO Nanoparticles
In this research Aluminum alloy (Al 356.1) matrix composite reinforced with Magnesium Oxide Nano particle in the weight % of 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, and 2.0 %. Reinforcement process is carried out by stir casting method Microstructure and mechanical properties of Nano composites. The nanocomposites were characterized by scanning electron microscope (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). mechanical Test were carried out in order to identify the properties The results reveal that the composites containing 1.5 wt % reinforcement particle fabricated at 850o C have homogenous reinforcements of MgO in Al356.1 Tensile, wear properties and hardness strength also improved .
