Abstract

This paper overviews the fabrication, microstructural characteristics, mechanical properties and tribological behaviour of BC reinforced aluminium metal matrix composites (AMMCs). The stir casting procedure and parameters used to fabricate the Al-BC composites are discussed. The influence of physical parameters such as applied load, sliding speed and sliding distance on tribological behaviour is analysed. The role of the mechanically mixed layer (MML) and wear mechanisms on the wear behaviour and friction coefficient are emphasised. The overview of tribological behaviour revealed that the Al-BC composites possess excellent abrasion resistance and the ability to operate over a wide range of physical parameters. The Al-BC composites exhibited better tribological behaviour when compared with the composites reinforced with conventional reinforcement particles (SiC).
