|Abstract||Molybdenum (Mo), possessing higher hardness compared to aluminum (Al), is used for the surface hardness improvement in Al 1050 alloy. Al-Mo surface composites are developed using friction stir processing with different tool shoulder diameters. Single groove composite (SGC) and double groove composite (DGC) samples are processed with 22-, 20-, and 18-mm shoulder diameter tools to study the effect of tool shoulder diameter and Mo content on the surface hardness of Al-Mo surface composites. Microhardness increased from 26 to 51 Hv on the top surface and 52 Hv on the cross section surface, in 18 DGC. The surface hardness of the composite samples increased with decrease in tool shoulder diameter due to the combined effect of grain refinement and Mo reinforcement particles. Unprocessed Al 1050 base alloy possessed an average grain size of ~ 99 µm. The grain size in the processed samples reduced with decrease in tool shoulder diameter. Surface composites processed with 22-, 20-, and 18-mm tools exhibited an average grain size of ~ 23, ~ 22, and ~ 21 µm, respectively. The amount of Mo particles incorporated in the composite material increased with decrease in tool shoulder diameter. Microstructural analysis confirmed that the FSP groove method incorporated about ~ 8 wt pct Mo in 22 SGC and ~ 12 wt pct in 22 DGC, respectively. The amount of Mo particles in 20 SGC and 20 DGC is ~ 17 wt pct and ~ 22 wt pct, respectively, whereas 18 SGC and 18 DGC possessed ~ 27 wt pct and ~ 31 wt pct Mo particles. Mechanical shearing through severe plastic deformation during the friction stir processing reduced the average Mo particle size in the surface composites. Molybdenum is distributed in its elemental form in the Al-Mo surface composites without any intermetallic formation.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
