Abstract : An investigation was carried out to study the variation of nickel content on the microstructure, the hardness and the wear rate of surface modified cast aluminium bronze alloy. The heat source used was gas tungsten arc for modification of the surface. The nickel was coated by using electroplating technique on the cast aluminium bronze alloy by varying the coating thickness. The hardness increases and the wear rate decreases for the surface modified specimen. EDAX results confirms the presence of AlNi3 and AlNi intermetallic compounds. The result obtained by this investigation are compared with the earlier literature.
