Abstract

In this paper, the effect of nickel content on the mechanical properties of aluminum were investigated. High purity Al and Ni were melted in an induction furnace and cast into a metal mold. Microstructural characteristic and mechanical properties of the alloys were studied in detail. The addition of nickel to pure aluminum increased the tensile strength and decreased the elongation at break value of the specimens. Maximum wear resistance was obtained with the addition of 3 wt.-% Ni. Further addition of nickel caused a decrease in wear resistance.
