Paper Title:
Studies on Mechanical Properties and Wear Behaviour of In Situ Al-TiC Composites
  Abstract

In the present work, Al–TiC composites were synthesized by Flux Assisted Synthesis (FAS) route. In this in situ method the TiC particles are generated from the reaction between the mixture of K2TiF6 salt and graphite in the molten aluminium. The XRD peaks have confirmed the presence of the TiC and no other undesirable intermetallics have formed after reaction. After casting the composites were extruded and then aged. All the cast, extruded and aged composites samples have exhibited significant improvement in mechanical properties in comparison with the monolithic alloy. The erosion corrosion test have been performed and found that wear resistance of the composites have significantly improved by the presence of TiC particles. Optical and Scanning electron microscopy were used for microstructural analysis and XRD was used for phase analysis. Mechanical testes were performed as per the ASTM standards.
