K. Annigeri Ulhas and G. B., V. K., “Method of stir casting of Aluminum metal matrix Composites: A review”, in Materials Today: Proceedings, 2017, vol. 4, pp. 1140-1146.[Abstract]

Among the variety of manufacturing processes available for discontinuous metal matrix composites, stir casting is generally accepted as a particularly promising route, currently practiced commercially. Its advantages lie in its simplicity, flexibility and applicability to large quantity production with cost advantage. The major problem of this process is to obtain sufficient wetting of particle by liquid metal and to get a homogenous dispersion of the particulates. The present review is on the method employed in stir casting such as, how the base metal is melted, at what temperature and state it is to be maintained, what conditions the particulates are added and how the stirring time and stirring speed affect the final composite material. The effect of stirrer design and feeding mechanism has also been discussed. The variation in the type of mixing the particulates into the metal matrix has also been dealt with in the paper. In the introductory part the stir casting methodology with a diagram has been laid out to give an overview of the overall process of casting of metal matrix composites. The limitations of the process are also listed in the paper. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The design, development and structural analysis of forming tool for a side panel of an automobile is carried out in this endeavor. The design protocol is on conventional lines, based on tried and tested norms developed through expertise and experience reported in literature and design chapters. Solid works 2003, Auto CAD R2004 software has been used for modeling and detailing. Finite Element Analysis package Ansys5.4 has been used to determine the stresses that are induced in the Forming tool. This paper gives a brief overview of fabrication of tool, tool cost estimation and finally an insight into the stresses induced in the forming tool.
