Abstract: The microstructures and dry sliding wear behaviour of an Al-2Si alloy cast centrifugally are studied. Results indicate that at optimum speed the cast has a microstructure consisting of uniformly distributed ?-Al grains and fine eutectic silicon grains. The cast exhibited better wear resistance compared to the same cast prepared at different rpms. This paper attempts to investigate the influence of the microstructural changes in the Al-2Si alloy by varying the rotational speed of the mould and its combined action on the dry sliding wear behaviour.
