Untrasonic-Assisted Fabrication of SiC Nanoparticles Reinforced Aluminum Matrix Composites
SiC nanoparticles reinforced ADC12 aluminium alloy nanocomposites were synthesized by mechanical stirring and high-intensity ultrasonic dispersion processing. SEM analysis results showed that SiC nanoparticles were dispersed and distributed very well in the alloy matrix. TEM results suggested that SiC bonds well with matrix without forming an intermediate phase. The strength and ductility of the nanocomposites were improved simultaneously.
