Transcript of Fabrication of Graphene - Al 2124 Matrix Composite

Composites &
Nanocomposites Processing Testing COMPOSITES NANOCOMPOSITES Nanocomposite is a multiphase solid material where one of the phases has one, two or three dimensions of less than 100 nanometers, or structures having nanoscale repeat distances between the phases. A composite is a class of materials that combines two or more constituents to get more desirable combinations of properties. Interface Reinforce-ment Matrix Metal Matrix Composites MMC is a composite with at least two constituents one being the matrix which is a metal or metal alloy, and the other is the reinforcement which is a different metal, or ceramic or organic compound. Vs Metals Vs PMC Vs CMC Higher tensile strength
Higher toughness & ductility Higher strength
Lower creep rate
Better wear resistance Higher thermal resistance
High electrical & thermal cond.
No moisture absorption ALUMINIUM MATRIX COMPOSITES Matrix Offer a large variety of mechanical properties. Adv. Al-Si, Al-Cu, 2xxx or 6xxx alloys Reinforcement Usually reinforced by Al2O3, and SiC Al 2124 Matrix Wrought Alloy Alloying elements are copper, magnesium, manganese, silicon, and zinc Elevated temperature applications requiring fracture toughness,
Aircraft structures Good strength retention and creep resistance at elevated temperatures up to 177°C
Heat treatable Graphene Reinforcement Graphene is a single layer of carbon packed in a hexagonal (honeycomb) lattice, with a carbon-carbon distance of 0.142 nm. Composites infused with graphene are stronger, stiffer, and less prone to failure than composites infused with CNTs or other nanoparticles. 1 Composites & Nano composites 2 Powder Metallurgy Ball Milling Extrusion Extrusion Parameters Extrusion
