Studying the Physical Properties of System (Al-BuC) Composite


The aim of this research is studying some physical properties (bulk density,apparent density, apparent porosity percentage, water absorption percentage) formetal matrix composite material. Aluminum matrix consists boron carbide particlesas a reinforced phase. Different percents (0%, 2%, 5%, 10%, and 15%) of (B4C)have been used. powder technology process is used for preparing the specimens,the results shows that the bulk and apparent density decrease, apparent porositypercentage and water absorption percentage were increasing as percentage of (B4C)particles increase.
