Languages of publication
Stir casting is one of the simple, flexible and the cost effective methods for fabricating of metal matrix composites reinforced with particles. In this study, 5%, 10%, 15 vol.% Ti6Al4V particles were added into the Mg-3Al melt during stirring. The tensile strength of Mg-3Al alloy was between 150-190 MPa and 5 vol.% Ti6Al4V/Mg-3Al alloy was equal. However, increasing the particle volume of Ti6Al4V powders to 10 vol.% and 15 vol.% decreased the ultimate tensile strength of composites to 140-170 MPa and 90-110 MPa, respectively. On the other hand, the hardness of reinforced composite was increased for each volume.
