    Abstract :

    ABSTRACT: A Eutectic Al-Si alloy (A413) was reinforced with varied percentage of intermetallic particles like Al3Ti, AlB2, TiB2 and Al4Sr particles by stir casting using graphite molds. They were heat treated in induction furnace. The Pin-on-Disc apparatus was used to study Wear behavior at different sliding speeds, pressures, sliding distance and heat treatment. Heat treatment resulted in further improvement in wear resistance. It is concluded that the intermetallic particles influences on wear rate. The higher temperature reveals the wear resistance due to the glaze formation that offers a protection and avoids further wear. Due to combined reinforced alloys to A413 alloy has resulted in minimum weight loss when compared to the individual addition Al3Ti, AlB2, TiB2 and Al4Sr reinforced intermetallic alloys and in heat treated conditions.
