ABSTRACT
For last several decades aluminium and aluminium alloys are widely used in automotive industries because for their favourable properties like low density (about 2700 Kg/m3), good malleability, high formability, high corrosion resistance and high electrical and thermal conductivity. High machinability and workability of aluminium alloys are prone to porosity due to gases dissolved during melting processes. However, in the engineering application pure aluminium and its alloys still have some problems such as relatively low strength, unstable mechanical properties and low wear resistance. The microstructure can be modified and mechanical properties, wear resistance can be improved by alloying, cold working and heat treatment. In this regards, the present paper reports the influences of enhancement of magnesium contents on the mechanical properties and wear behavior of LM 6 aluminum alloy.
