Abstract
The present study deals with the investigation of effect of reinforcement (Zirconium oxide & E-Glass Powder) particles on mechanical properties of aluminium alloy (Al6061) composites, fabricated by stir casting method. The MMC’s specimens were prepared by varying weight fraction of the reinforcement of the zirconium oxide and E-glass as 2Wt. %, 3Wt. %, and 4Wt. % and keeping all other parameters constant. The microstructure and mechanical properties of fabricated MMC’s were analysed. Microstructural studies of the MMC’s reveal a uniform distribution of zirconium dioxide (ZrO2) and E glass particles in the Al6061 matrix. The mechanical properties like hardness, tensile strength and wear strength were improved with the increase in weight fraction of zirconium dioxide and E glass particles in the aluminium matrix. It was observed that the elongation decrease with increase weight fraction of zirconium dioxide and E glass particles in the aluminium matrix.
