Abstract: Most of the machine elements have surface contacts with friction between them. The presence friction tends to wear off the surface leading to failure of the machinery. In today’s world almost all material scientists are striving to develop materials with low wear rate to improve the life expectancy and performance efficiency of the components. In this paper, I have carried out a comparative analysis of the effect of presence of reinforcing granite particles on A356/LM25 cast alloy of aluminum. The wear rates of both the alloy and composite are analyzed at different speeds and pressures. The results are used to analyze the tribological behavior, of the alloy and the composite.
Keywords: Granite, LM 25, Tribology, Wear rate
