Paper Title
Assessment of Mechanical and Corrosion properties of Aluminium Reinforced with Fly Ash (ALFA) Metal Matrix Composites
  Abhilash A,  Dr. Prabhakar Kammar

Aluminium alloy with Fly Ash composites which is now recognized as ALFA metal matrix composites are innovative and are most favorable materials in engineering applications. Several investigations promising in employing fly ash as reinforcement material with different aluminium series alloys other than Al5083 was studied. In the present work development of ALFA composites by using Al5083 alloy reinforced with fly ash through varying weight percentages in order of 5, 10 and 15 was accomplished. Fabrication was through stir casting means, machining and mechanical assessments was accompanied as per the ASTM defined standards. In order to determine the mechanical properties of these components they were exposed to different tests like tensile, hardness along with microstructure examination. Corrosion kinetics which is to study the weight loss in the material was carried out in the research. These samples were kept in sea water basin and weight loss was tested over a period of time. As the end result indicated that there was an improvement in ultimate tensile strength, hardness and bonding along with decline in weight loss was observed up to limiting percentage of fly ash addition
