Abstract:

Article Preview

SiC particulates reinforced Al matrix composites were fabricated by thermal spray process, and the dry sliding wear behavior against four different counterparts was investigated under a varying of the sliding speed and the applied load conditions. Al/SiC composites were fabricated by flame spraying, and the dry sliding wear tests were performed using the sliding speed of 0.4 m/s and 0.8 m/s at the applied load of 3 N. Sliding distance was kept at 1000 m for all the tests. Al2O3, ZrO2, Si3N4 and AISI 52100 balls were used as the counterparts. Wear tracks on the Al/SiC composites were investigated using scanning electron microscope (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX). It was revealed that wear behavior of Al/SiC composites was much influenced by counterpart materials.
