Abstract
AbstractIn this study, an Al–10 wt-%Al2O3 composite powder prepared by mechanical alloying was investigated at different milling times. To evaluate the effects of the amount of methanol as a process control agent on the characteristics of mechanical alloyed Al–Al2O3 composite powder and the properties of the composite materials, the composite powders and the composite materials have been successfully produced with different amounts of methanol, namely, 1, 2 and 3 wt-%. The composite powders were characterised using scanning electron microscope (SEM), laser particle size analyser, X-ray diffraction analysis and Vickers microhardness test. The milled powders were pressed and sintered under argon gas control. The microstructure of the produced composite was investigated by SEM. The results show that varying amounts of methanol produce considerable effects on the morphology, particle size and structural behaviour of the as milled composite powders. Moreover, different microhardness values were obtained for di...

Abstract High-energy wet ball milling was successfully employed to synthesize nano-crystalline Al 6063 alloy powders reinforced with 1.3 vol.%Al 2 O 3 , 1.3 vol.%Y 2 O 3 and 0.65 vol.%Al 2 O 3 /0.65 vol.%Y 2 O 3 at nano-size level. In the present study, the crystallite size of the matrix powder particle was affected by the addition of different types of nanoceramic particles separately and in combination keeping total volume percentages of such addition as constant. The nano-composite powders we...

Abstract Copper (Cu), niobium (Nb) and graphite (C) powders were used as starting materials to produce an in-situ Cu–15 vol% NbC composite using mechanical alloying followed by spark plasma sintering (SPS). A mixture of Cu, Nb and C powders was milled in an argon atmosphere for 30 h. Different amounts of ethanol were used to study the effect of the process control agent on the formation of NbC and the consequent properties of the Cu–NbC composite. The results showed that NbC was formed in the co...

Elemental aluminum powder was mechanically alloyed, and then consolidated to produce bulk powder metallurgy parts. Consolidation was carried out either by a double cycle of cold pressing and sintering or by a single press-and-sinter technique. In the last case, sintering was assisted by blending the as-milled aluminum powder with a silicon-base powder, as sintering aid. The focus of this paper is on the influence of processing variables upon structural characteristics and properties. Samples con...

The effects of stearic acid as a process control agent (PCA) on the synthesis of WC–MgO by mechanical alloying have been investigated. 0–2.0 wt% of stearic acid is added into the mixture of WO3, Mg, and graphite powders in high-energy planetary ball milling experiments, and the as-milled powders are characterized by XRD and TEM. Results show that the mechanochemical reaction among WO3, Mg, and graphite to form WC–MgO can be changed from a mechanically induced self-propagating reaction (MSR) to a...

High energy ball milling was used to produce a nanostructured Al matrix composite reinforced by submicron α-alumina particles. Scanning electron microscopy analysis as well as tap and green density measurements were used to optimize the milling time needed for the completion of the mechanical milling process. Results show that addition of alumina particles as the reinforcement has a drastic effect on the size, morphology and pressability of the powder. Scanning electron microscopy shows that dis...

Abstract In this paper, an Al6061–10 wt% SiC composite was prepared using the mechanical alloying route. The morphology and the structure of the prepared powder, which change with milling time, were evaluated using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques, respectively. Moreover, the relationships among the stages of mechanical alloying (MA), relative density and hardness of both pressed and hot extruded materials were investigated. The morphological evolutions s...

Abstract The relation between powder morphology and compressibility of the Cu/SiC p composite powder was investigated as a function of milling time. With the milling time increase, the dentritic copper powder became flattened, which subsequently became spherical shaped. The compressibility of powders experienced mechanical alloying changes with the powder morphology and is in accordance with the compaction equation proposed by Panelli and Ambrozio Filho.

Abstract In this work, a Fe–Zr based alloy prepared by mechanical alloying (MA) was investigated. The balance between cold welding and fracturing is controlled by the addition of a surface additive, a process control agent (PCA). Several PCAs such as hexane, polyethylene glycol, cyclopentane, naphthalene and hexanone were used. The results indicate that PCAs produce considerable effects on the particle size as well as on the structural behavior and thermal stability of the as milled powders, if ...

Mechanical alloying technique has been used to produce aluminium-based metal matrix composite powders. As base material, the aluminium alloy AA2014 was selected, and two different carbides (VC and TiC) were chosen as reinforcements. Elemental powders (Al, Mg, Si and Cu) and carbide powders were mixed together in a high energy horizontal ball mill (Zoz attritor), with a balls/load (in weight) ratio of 20/1 at 700 rpm for different times (5, 7 and 10 h). The amount of elemental powders was such th...

Abstract A 5vol%SiC/AA2024 nanocomposite was prepared by a powder metallurgy routine involving high energy ball milling (HEBM), spark plasma sintering (SPS) and hot extrusion. The microstructures and mechanical properties of the 5vol%SiC/AA2024 nanocomposite samples prepared using different HEBM and SPS times were investigated in detail. It was found that increasing the milling time from 12 to 24 h caused refinement of Al grains and better dispersion of SiC nanoparticles, leading to a significan...
