Microstructural Modification and Surface Hardness Improvement in Al-Mo Friction Stir Surface Composites

Molybdenum-reinforced aluminum matrix surface composites have been fabricated using friction stir processing. The Mo reinforcement results in an increase in the hardness and a decrease in the grain size. The Mo particle size and its dependence on the …

Corrosion Behavior of Aluminum Surface Composites with Metallic, Ceramic, and Hybrid Reinforcements Using Friction Stir Processing

The study focuses on the effect of mono and combined addition of metallic and ceramic reinforcement particles on the microstructural and corrosion behavior of surface composites fabricated by friction stir processing. Molybdenum, possessing higher …

Experimental Characterization of Metal Matrix Composite with Aluminium Matrix and Molybdenum Powders as Reinforcement

This paper is on the successful fabrication of Metal Matrix Composite (MMC) using an Aluminium plate and Molybdenum powder by Friction Stir Process (FSP). The aim was to produce a superficial MMC layer on the Al plate in order to increase the …
