R. Pramod and Kumar, M. E. Shashi, “Evaluation of mechanical and insulation properties of nomex-T410 and HS glass polymer matrix composites”, in Materials Today: Proceedings, 2017, vol. 4, pp. 3233-3242.[Abstract]


Glass fibre-reinforced plastics (GFRP) composite materials are extending the application horizons of designers in all branches of engineering. The present work is focused on development and determination of mechanical and dielectric properties of hybrid polymer composites of Nomex and High Silica Glass fabricated through handlay process. Five laminates each were fabricated for four different stacking orders with an average of 55% matrix contents. The polymeric composite was tested for mechanical and dielectric properties. It is found that the hardness was boosted in the laminate with the presence of more layers of High Silica glass fibers, presence of higher number of Nomex contributed for an increase in the compression strength and High Silica glass fibers and Nomex had an equal effect in increasing flexural strength of the composite. The Nomex and E-glass fibers present in the core of the composite covered by High Silica glass on the outer layer of the composite offered very good dielectric strength and surface resistivity for the composite and the absence of E-glass fibers have enhanced the dissipation factor. Further all laminates showed a greater stability towards chemical attack and temperature stability was observed up to 300° C. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

S. Mohan Kumar, Pramod, R., and Govindaraju, H. K., “Evaluation of Mechanical and Wear Properties of Aluminium AA430 Reinforced with SiC and Mgo”, in Materials Today: Proceedings, 2017, vol. 4, pp. 509-518.[Abstract]


Aluminum metal matrix composites (MMC's) are very widely used for several different applications like Aerospace, Automotive and Marine industries owing to their unique properties. While fabricating Hybrid MMC's using stir casting technique several technical challenges exist like achieving a uniform distribution of reinforcement within the matrix during stir casting which affects material behavior. Aluminum (AA 443.0) and SiC + MgO has been chosen as matrix and reinforcement material respectively. Experiments have been conducted by varying weight fraction of SiC + MgO (2.5%, 5% and 7.5%) while keeping all other parameters constant. An increasing trend of hardness and tensile strength with increase in weight percentage of SiC+MgO has been observed. The results also reveal that the wear rate of the test specimen's increase with the increasing load and sliding distance. The coefficient of friction slightly decreased with increasing volume content of reinforcement. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

V. K. G. B., Gouda, P. S. Shivakumar, Pramod, R., and Rao, C. S. P., “Synthesis and characterization of TiO2 reinforced Al6061 composites”, Advanced Composites Letters, vol. 26, pp. 18-23, 2017.[Abstract]


This article presents the investigative work carried out to study the relationship between the physical, mechanical and tribological characteristics of aluminum matrix composites reinforced with Titanium dioxide (TiO2). The powder metallurgy route of production was followed to produce the composites (Al6061 containing 3 wt% TiO2). The composites were subjected to sequences of physical, mechanical and tribological investigations. The outputs of the experiments done indicate that the increase in TiO2 fillers increase the density of the composite and the values accepted by the rule of mixtures. The result of mechanical characterisation of Al6061-TiO2 composites was noticed to increase significantly with higher TiO2 content in the matrix, with loss in ductility. The dry sliding wear studies of Al6061-TiO2 composite showed greater wear resistance than Al6061 matrix and the composite containing higher filler content displayed the superior physical, mechanical and tribological characteristics. © 2017, Adcotec Ltd.
