An Approach for Improving Wear Rate of Aluminum Based Metal Using Red Mud, SiC and Al2O3 Matrix Composites

Gurvishal Singh1 , Harwinder Lal1, and Daljit Singh2 Gurdeshbir Singh2

Abstract—In this paper we describe the behavior of Metal matrix composites. As we know that these metal matrix composites are used mostly in liberty ships, aerospace, automotive, and nuclear. In the present paper the study on sharp show off activities of Aluminum metal matrix composite reinforced with Red Mud, SiC and Al2O3 has been carried out. There are various production technique offered where the value fraction of reinforcements could be inflamed and are likely to vary the wear performances of the composite. Composites posses excellent Strength and Stiffness and this describes that these are very light Materials. So this paper describes that these possess high resistance to oxidization, chemicals and other weather agents. Our paper also describes the advantages of MMC’s as it provides Dimensional stability, Wear and Corrosion resistance, Reduced Weight. As we know that Red mud emerges as the major waste material during production of alumina from bauxite by the Bayer’s process. Enormous efforts have been directed worldwide towards red mud management issues, i.e., of utilization, storage and disposal. Different avenues of red mud utilization are more or less known but none of them have so far proved to be economically viable or commercially feasible. It is studied that micro hardness and resistance to wear of MMCs is produced by reinforcement and also the wear properties are improved remarkably by introducing hard intermetallic compound into the aluminum matrix.
