Wear Analysis of Al-SiC Composite Valve Guide by Using ANSYS: A Review

Nikulkumar K Lathiya, Ahmed Sayyed


This application of using that can promise for the future growth. To finding a wear rate of the material and comparing to the cast iron basically using in continuous life. First of all aluminum silicon carbide using in aerospace engineering, Then some few year this composite material also can be used in automobile engineering. Aluminum silicon carbide mostly used there excellent properties like high wear resistance, low density, good strength to weight ratio. Due to these properties of composite material have found the application of various automotive parts. Basically, this material using there light in weight in industrial area. Light in weight properties this material manufacture component such as cylinder, valve seat insert, crankshaft, and camshaft.
