Friction and Wear Properties of Aluminum Matrix Composites and its Application

Abstract:

Article Preview

Friction and wear properties of aluminum matrix composites are studied, including brake speed, brake pressure, and surface temperature etc. A conclusion can be drawn that SiC particle reinforced aluminum matrix composites are of stable friction coefficient, high thermal conductivity, and excellent wear-resistance. Hubs of motorcycle with brake rings of Al/SiC composites were manufactured and exhibited an excellent braking performance.
