Recycled “Al431 + A1050” Based Composites Reinforced with “TiC” Ceramic Powders for Aeronautical Applications
Department of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics
In this study, a novel recycled Al 431 + 1050 based composites reinforced with “TiC” were designed for aeronautical applications with high resistant structure against to choc and static loading under service conditions. Static/dynamic compression behaviours of these composites were evaluated. Basically, laboratory-scale test samples were produced using combined “sinter + forging” production methods. Al 431 + 1050, a mixture of recycled and modified aluminium alloys, was used as the main matrix material. Different proportions of TiC (10, 15 and 20 wt %) were used as a major reinforcement element. As minor reinforcements, Mo and Cu metal powders and a small amount of Graphene Nano Platelets, (GNPs), and Alumina, (γ-Al2O3) fibre were used to compare their influence on the mechanical properties of these hybrid composite structures.
