Abstract
: In the present research work, the dry sliding wear behavior of nickel coated short carbon fibers
(NCSCFs) reinforced aluminum matrix composite were studied. The composites were fabricated by liquid
metallurgy technique by varying with 2, 4, 6 & 8 wt% of NCSCFs. The wear rates were evaluated using a
pin-on-disc wear-testing machine by varying the loads. The effects of percentage of fiber content, normal load,
sliding speed, and wear mechanism were investigated. The results indicated that Al/NCSCFs composite had
lower rates than that of Al alloy. The wear rates of the composites decreased with the increase of NCSCFs
content. However, wear rates increased with the increase in normal load and rotating speed in both composites
and Al alloy. NCSCF develops direct bridge gap between the matrix and counterpart thus, results in improving
the better wear resistance in Al/NCSCFs composite. The worn and fractured surfaces of both Al/NCSCFs
composite and Al alloy were characterized using SEM.

Key words: Al alloy, NCSCF, sliding wear, wear resistance
