Mechanical Behavior of CNTs/SiCp/AZ91D Magnesium Matrix Composites
AZ91D alloy composites reinforced by CNTs/SiCp were fabricated using stir casting process. The mechanical properties of the composites were tested, observed and analyzed the microstructure, the fractographs were observed and analyzed via scanning electron microscope. The results showed that CNTs/SiCp could not only refine the grains of the composites, but also bear the load of resistance to deformation. Compared with the matrix alloy, the tensile strength, the elastic modulus, the micro-hardness and the elongation rate of the composites had been enhanced significantly. But the mechanical properties would be fell down with the more addition of CNTs/SiCp.
