P Naga Sai Rohith, D. Vinodh and L. Natrayan

Abstract

To compare the tensile strength (TS) of the aluminum alloy AA5083 reinforced with silicon carbide (SiC) nanoparticles by 2% of volume and the as cast AA5083. The metal matrix composite of aluminum alloy AA5083 with SiC nanoparticles was prepared using stir-casting method. A G-Power calculation of 80% was used to determine 20 samples per group. Twenty sample specimens of as cast aluminum alloy AA5083 made up the control group, whereas twenty sample specimens of aluminum alloy reinforced with 2% nano SiC made up the experimental group. The ASTM-D2583 standard was followed in the TS testing. The mean TS of as cast AA5083 was 233.15 MPa and the mean TS for AA5083 + 2% SiC novel metal matrix composite was 243.45 MPa. Using the independent sample t-test a value of significance of p = 0.001 (p < 0.05) was obtained. Within the limitations of this study, the metal matrix composite with 2% weight percent of nano SiC microparticles as filler materials had a 12% relative increase in TS compared.
