Abstract

Hybrid metal matrix composites (MMCs) have growing application of in structural and reliability critical applications and has replacements of ceramics due to their first-class wettability and inherent ductility and toughness. This research is determined on the influence of dealing out on hybrid alumunium composite reinforced right through Al, B4C and Tio2 reactions. In order to examine the outcome of Al-Ti based intermetallic compounds on the properties in situ Al3Ti were likely to form over and above TiB and TiC. . The in situ composite that had a B4C and Tio2 content of 6wt% of B4C exhibited considerably high strength (20.94kN) and elastic modulus of (169.82N/mm2).These insitu composites can be accepted to have excellent mechanical strain tolerance. Hardness value was calculated using a Vickers micro hardness tester. It is observed that the 6wt% B4C of reinforcement   had highest hardness number (91.90VHN).SEM micrograph observations indicate that the reinforcement was homogeneously distributed in hybrid aluminium metal matrix (HAMC) in addition to Morphological characterization plus wear behaviour of aluminium hybrid composites were investigated, amounts of B4C ( 2, 4, and 6wt %) were added to. The morphological characterization of all synthesized composites was performing using X-ray diffractometer (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Energy Dispersive Spectrum (EDS) and Elemental Maps. The wear resistance of aluminium hybrid composite (HAMC) reinforced with 6 wt% B4C particles was highest amongst all the synthesized composites.
