In the present work Al356-Bagasse ash composites are produced by two stage stir casting method and subsequently various properties like compression strength, tensile strength, hardness of Al356 are studied. Al356 alloy is reinforced with bagasse ash particles of the various weight percentage (2,4 and 6% wt.). An experimental result shows uniform distribution of the bagasse ash particles in the matrix of the Al356 leading to increase in the mechanical strength of the composites. The tensile and compression tests are carried out with the help of Universal Testing Machine and it was observed that ultimate tensile strength, yield strength and compression strength increases with increase weight percentage of bagasse ash in the composite, while percentage elongation decreases. The hardness of the composites are measured by brinell hardness tester and it was observed that hardness of the composite material increases with increase in weight percentage of bagasse ash particles.

Keywords: Aluminium matrix, bagasse ash, two stage stir casting, tensile strength, compressive strength, hardness
