Paper Title:
The Effect of Matrix on the Mechanical Properties of Squeeze Cast Al - 50 % SiCp Composites
  Abstract

This study has been conducted to investigate the mechanical properties of aluminum matrix 50 vol.% SiC particle (SiCp) reinforced composites produced by a squeeze casting technique. Commercial 2618, 6082, and 7012 aluminum alloys were utilized as the matrix material. Composites were tested in as-cast and T6-tempered states. Mechanical properties of the composites were determined by hardness measurements and impact tests. As-cast composites exhibited lower hardness along with a better impact resistance than their T6-tempered states. After T6-tempering the hardness of 7012 matrix composite reached to a value of 324 HV2, which is comparable with the hardness of quenched and tempered steels.
