ABSTRACT

The wear resistance of a (A 356) Aluminium alloy reinforced with silicon carbide particles was studied as a function of temperature. The tests were performed at three temperatures :5, 18, and 30℃, and at three impact loads: 29.4, 39.2 and 49 N on dray environment. The reductions in the temperature were produced through Conventional cooling unit .The wear rate increased with the increasing in the temperature. The experiments was made also for the same alloy but after reinforced it with 15 wt.% from silicon carbide particles. The results show that the wear rate of A 356/15 wt.% of SiCp were also increases with the increasing in the temperature and with the increasing in the applied.
