dc.description.abstract The purpose of this project is to identify and compare wear and the weight loss of a light duty engine cam using Nano titanium dioxide reinforced aluminum composite cam with a cam of 4% Nano Silicon Carbide reinforced aluminum composite cam. The weight percent of the Nano TiO2 is taken to be 4%. Homogenized property of the Nano TiO2 aluminum composite cam modeling is shown in detail and done through MatLab. After identifying the property of the composite as a single material, the wear analysis with its round faced follower is done through ABAQUS software 6.14CAE for a given conditions of 200 rpm for 6 hours at a room temperature for half kilograms of load. The wear results of ABAQUS 6.14CAE on three critical portions of the cam, such as the cam basic circle, cam lobe and cam flank is identified at given conditions. The weight lost found by ABAQUS at the cam is calculated by Archard’s wear law. Result showed at 4%wt of Nano TiO2- Al cam, it is showen better wear result compared to Nano SiC-Al cam.
