Analysis on wear properties of Graphene Hydroxyl Reinforced Aluminum Composites
Aluminum is a noble material for the structural applications in aviation, naval, space, locomotive and automobile industries. Low wear strength of aluminium limits its application where wear is involved in the functioning of the components. Carbon is a substitute for composing with aluminum as reinforcing material for enhancing the properties like hardness, wear strength as it act as self lubricating material. In the present paper the interest is focused on wear behavior of composite material when graphene is reinforced with aluminum as matrix which enhances the wear strength of the composition. It is discussed with the properties like co-efficient of friction, friction force and loss of material due to wear.
