Abstract
Abstract The purpose of this research is to investigate the dual effect of silicide (MoSi2 or WSi2) and LaB6 reinforcing particles on the microstructural and mechanical properties of Al-7 wt% Si (Al7Si) matrix. Hypoeutectic Al7Si blends prepared from elemental Al and Si powders were mechanically alloyed (MA’d) for 12 h in a planetary ball mill (at 300 rpm). Afterwards, 2 wt% silicide reinforcements (MoSi2 or WSi2) with various particle size distributions (micron, bimodal, submicron) were separately added into these MA’d Al7Si powders together with 2 wt% of LaB6 particles. Powders having compositions of Al7Si, Al7Si-2 wt% LaB6, Al7Si-2 wt% LaB6-2 wt% MoSi2 and Al7Si-2 wt% LaB6-2 wt% WSi2 were milled for 30 min using a high-energy ball mill (at 1200 rpm) in order to obtain homogeneous distribution throughout the microstructure. Compositional, microstructural and mechanical characterization studies were performed on the sintered samples. The results showed that high-energy ball milling ensured the homogeneous distribution of micron-sized MoSi2 and WSi2 particles within the matrix rather than those of bimodal and submicron-sized ones. Micron-sized MoSi2 and WSi2 reinforced hybrid composites displayed dramatically higher hardness and wear resistance than those of composites reinforced with different size of MoSi2 and WSi2 particles. The striking point of the study was the remarkably higher hardness and wear resistance properties of the hybrid composites compared to those of un-reinforced and only LaB6-reinforced ones. As a conclusion, hybrid composites extremely displayed promising mechanical properties.

Abstract This paper reports on the preparation of ZrC particulate-reinforced Al-7 wt.% Si composites by using a consecutive method of mechanical alloying (MA) and spark plasma sintering (SPS). Al, Si (7 wt.%), and ZrC (0, 2, 5, and 10 wt.%) powders were blended and mechanically alloyed (MA'd) for 4 h in a high-energy vibratory ball mill. Subsequently, SPS (at 450 °C for 210 s) was carried out on non-MA'd and MA'd powders. Dissimilar to the inhomogeneous microstructure of the non-MA'd powders, th...

Abstract In this study, x wt% LaB6 (x = 0, 2, 5 and 10) particulate-reinforced eutectic Al-12.6 wt% Si powders and composites were prepared from commercial Al, Si and LaB6 starting materials via powder metallurgy methods. Mechanical alloying (MA) was conducted on the blended powders using a high-energy ball mill (at 1060 cycles/min) for 2, 4 and 8 h. Mechanically alloyed (MA'd) powders were subjected to cold pressing (CP, under 450 MPa) and spark plasma sintering (at 450 °C for 180 s) processes....

Abstract The hot compression tests of hybrid aluminum-matrix composites reinforced with micro-SiC and nano-TiB2 were performed at deformation temperature of 350–500 °C and strain rates of 0.001-1s−1 on Gleeble-3500 system. The corresponding deformed microstructures were characterized by electron back scattered diffraction (EBSD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The results show that the true stress increased rapidly with the increase of the true str...

Abstract An A6005 aluminium alloy composite reinforced with different contents of titanium boride particles (2.5, 5 and 10 wt%) was produced by a mechanical alloying (MA) route. First, the aluminium alloy and titanium boride powders were blended by MA at different milling times, from 1 to 10 h. The samples obtained after MA processing were microstructurally and mechanically characterised by OM, SEM, TEM, LDS, XRD and micro-hardness tests. The optimum size distribution and suitable mechanical pro...

Abstract null null Chromium boride/nitride powders were mechanochemically synthesized via two different routes. In the first route, Cr and BN powder blends in stoichiometric ratios were milled for 8 h and annealed at 1500 °C for 12 h. In the second route, powder blends containing stoichiometric amounts of Cr2O3, B2O3, Mg and BN were milled for 8 h, annealed at 1500 °C for 12 h and leached in an HCl solution. Synthesized powders of both routes were incorporated into Al - 4 wt% Cu matrix alloy (Al...
