Abstract
In the present work, the effect of milling parameters on the morphology and microstructure of nanostructure Al2024–B4C composite powders obtained by mechanical alloying (MA) was studied. The effects of milling time and B4C content on the morphology, microstructure and particle size of nanostructure Al2024–B4C composite powders have been investigated. Different amounts of B4C particles (0, 5, 10 and 20 wt.%) were mixed with Al2024 powders and milled in a planetary ball mill for 30, 60, 120, 300, 420 and 600 min. Al 2024–B4C composite powders were characterized using a scanning electron microscope (SEM), laser particle-size analyzer, X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD) and the Vickers microhardness test. The results showed that the nanostructure Al2024–B4C composite powders were produced when they were milled for 600 min. The size of composite powder in the milled powder mixture was affected by the milling time and content of B4C particles. Moreover, it was observed that when MA reached a steady state, the pro...

article i nfo An artificial neural network (ANN) model was developed for modeling the effect of the amount of a process control agent (PCA) on the apparent density, particle size and microhardness of Al-10 wt.%Al2O3 composite powders. Methanol was used as the process control agent in varying amounts of 1, 2, and 3 wt.% to investi- gate the effect of the PCA on the properties of the composite powders. Composite powders were fabricated using high energy planetary ball milling, and the training dat...

Abstract When mechanical alloying process is employed to synthesize composite powders strengthened by particle dispersion, the powders tend to fracture into small segments, especially when high content of ceramic particles is added. In the present work, a step-fashion mechanical alloying (MA) method was developed to synthesize 40 vol.% cBNp/NiCrAl composite powders with both cBNp uniform dispersion in the metal alloy matrix and desirable particle size distribution. The effect of MA time on the p...

Abstract In this work, four different volume fractions of Al 2 O 3 (10, 20, 30 and 40 vol.%) were mixed with the fine Al powder and the powder blends were milled for 5 h. Scanning electron microscopy analysis, particle size analysis and bulk density measurements were used to investigate the morphological changes and achieving the steady state conditions. The results showed that increasing the Al 2 O 3 content can provide the steady state particle size in 5 h milling process. It was found that in...

Mechanical alloying (MA) is a powder metallurgy processing technique that involves repeated cold welding, fracturing, and rewelding of powder particles in a high-energy ball mill. Due to the specific advantages offered by this technique, MA was used to synthesize a variety of advanced materials. This article presents two specific examples of synthesis of nanocomposites containing a high volume fraction of the reinforcement phase in Al and TiAl matrices. It was possible to uniformly disperse 50 v...

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...

Nanostructure chromium carbides were fabricated by mechanical alloying in a Fritsch planetary ball mill. The morphological changes and the effect of milling time and elementary powder compositions on final products were investigated by employing scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The results show that although at early stages of milling the solid solutions were formed, but the final products for prolonged milling times were intermetallic compounds. Also crystallite s...

Abstract Dispersion of metallized graphite nanoparticle reinforcements in 7075 aluminum alloy (Al 7075 ) and composites were microstructurally and mechanically characterized. Al 7075 -based composites were prepared by mechanical alloying in a high energy ball mill. Composites were cold compacted, sintered, and hot extruded in order to obtain samples for mechanical evaluation (hardness and tension). From a microstructural point of view, milling time and graphite concentration had an important eff...

Abstract Wettability between Cu and Al2O3 nanoparticles is relatively low, which limit the applicability of this nanocomposite. To this end, electro-less deposition of Ag over Al2O3 nanoparticles were applied to improve their wettability with Cu matrix. Al2O3 coated Ag were mixed with commercially pure Cu powder in varying weight percentages (0, 2, 4, 6 and 8) and then nanocomposites were synthesized through powder metallurgy route. To obtain uniform distribution of nanoparticles in Cu matrix, m...
