Abstract [en]

Aluminum matrix fly ash (AMFA) cenosphere composites were fabricated using the stir casting technique. The used type of fly ash cenosphere, which accounted for over 60% in all fly ash particles, was in narrow and small size (2-30 mu m). During synthesis, effects of several key technological parameters on microstructure and properties were investigated using orthogonal experimental design. The optimal technological parameter was achieved as: melt temperature of 700 degrees C + stirring rate of 1200 r/min + stirring time of 6 min + fly ash cenosphere content of 13 wt%. With this optimal technological parameter, as-cast and forged composites were manufactured. Their tensile strengths were measured and improved maximally by 50% when the cenosphere content is 13 wt%. Such size and content of fly ash cenosphere and technological parameter could largely improve the properties of composites, which should be introduced into the production process of AMFA composites.
