Paper Title:
Mechanical and Fatigue Properties of the SiCp/Al Composites
  Abstract

Mechanical and fatigue properties of the SiCp/Al with three different SiC particle volume fractions: 5%, 7.5% and 10% as well as Al6061 alloy were examined with tensile test, hardness measurement and fatigue crack propagation test. Tensile strengths and hardness of the SiCp/Al increased together with SiC particle volume fraction. It was checked that tensile strengths of the SiCp/Al had a certain relation with the corresponding hardness. On the other hand, fatigue crack propagation behavior (FCPB) of the SiCp/Al was faster than that of the AA6061. Besides, difference of the FCPB among SiC particle volume fractions was not pronounced. However, The FCPB slightly increased together with SiC particle volume fraction. It was noted that fatigue properties of the SiCp/Al was more affected by local volume fraction in front of crack tip than bulk volume fraction. In addition, the presence of SiC particles delayed fatigue crack initiation effectively because the percentage of fatigue crack initiation life to the whole fatigue life was a maximum of 38%, larger than that of ordinary structural materials.
