Abstract

Morphology of dry worn surface of a composite of Al-Si alloy reinforced with aluminum nitride(AlN) particles was studied by using a pin-on-disc type wear tester. The composite was prepared by stir casting process where the melt was poured into a mould via bottom outlet of the melting furnace. Morphological study and chemical analysis on the composite were done using a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and an Energy Dispersive X-ray analyzer (EDX) respectively. The result showed that the composite contained predominantly α-Al and AlN particles were entrapped in between silicon particles. Wear morphologies revealed that a combination of adhesion, abrasion and delamination was the mechanism for the wear process. Investigation by EDX has also revealed that transferring of materials has taken between specimen surface and the steel counter-face.
