Sivasankaran Babu, Lakshmaiya Natrayan and Titus Richard

Abstract

The main objective of this research is to understand the tensile strength of AA8176 reinforced with nano graphene (10%) by using novel encapsulation techniques and comparing it with as-cast AA8176. A novel encapsulation technique is used to make the test samples in two different groups with the help of a stir-casting method. For group 1, as-cast AA8176 is used and for group 2, composition of AA8176 and nano graphene (10%) is used. ASTM E08-8 standards are used for preparing the test samples and the machine used for evaluating the sample’s tensile strength is a universal testing machine (UTM-Auto instrument). Each group consists of 20 samples. G-power of 80% is used to calculate the sample size, α = 0.05 per set and a sum of 40 samples. The maximum tensile strength of AA8176 with nano graphene (10%) is 19% higher than the AA8176 as-cast material. Between group 1 and group 2’s mean variance of tensile strength there is a significant p = 0.00 (p < 0.05) difference in t-test’s statistical analysis. Within the limitations of this study, it is observed that the tensile strength of AA8176 has increased with nano graphene (10%) reinforcement. Within the limitations of this study, it is observed that the tensile strength of AA8176 has increased with nano graphene (10%) reinforcement.
