Wear Behavior of SiCp Reinforced Metal Matrix Composites Fabricatied by Thermal Spray Process
SiC particulates reinforced with Al matrix composites were fabricated using a thermal spray process. In addition, the dry sliding wear behavior was investigated using various sliding speeds and applied loads. Premixed Al and SiC powder was sprayed onto an Al6061 substrate by flame spraying, and dry sliding wear tests were performed under varying sliding speed and applied load conditions. Wear behavior of the composites were studied using a scanning electron microscope(SEM), X-ray diffraction(XRD) and a surface roughness tester.
