Study the Mechanical Properties of Al-glass Composite


The present research aimed at studying the effect of (1, 3, 5 ) Wt % addition of glass particles on the mechanical and wear resistance of the pure Aluminum. All samples were prepared by using vortex technique ( mechanical stirring) for the moltens of these materials and pouring in steal molds. Acceptable improvement in mechanical properties of the base metal was observed after addition of glass particles .Wear behavior of composite were being studied by using pin- on – disc technique under dry sliding condition and at the same sliding velocity and distance for all tested specimens . The results of wear experiment appeared an increase in wear resistance of the base metal by increasing the addition of glass particles
