Extrusion Characterizes of Al/Sic by different Manufacturing Process
Author(s)– V. Jayaseelan, K. Kalaichelvan, M. Kannan, S. Vijay Ananth
This paper deals with the comparison of the performance characteristics of Al/SiC composites produced through stir casting and powder metallurgy. Composites prepared by 5 % volume fraction of SiC reinforcement material with Aluminum matrix metal. In primary process there is some defects like porosity, blow holes, irregular grain structure are present that can be reduced in secondary process i.e. extrusion. Work pieces are longitudinally split, grid marked and extruded in hydraulic press. From the deformed grid, stress and strain values are calculated. Hardness values and microstructure are also compared for the two processes.

Indeed it is our pleasure to inform you that owing to the promotions our association members are doing, our journals are receiving more number of high quality research articles from Indian and foreign researchers.
Being a peer reviewed journal all the articles were being sent to review and the review report is received, based on which a decision is being taken to publish the article or not. Our normal committed duration for this process is not more than 30 days but for the past two weeks we are unable to publish few articles.
As of now owing to the receipt of more than 90 articles we had to agree that we are backlogging, we also regret for the same. Being a small association of academia working with various organizations we are bound to perform our personal works also. We apologize sincerely for the delay in the articles getting published, the same is duly notified to the concerned authors.
We are writing this blog post to inform our authors that we are overhelmed with the support you all are rendering, we hope to get more citations in the coming year because of the high quality of articles published at our journals. We also inform you that we are taking all necessary steps to publish the articles received in priority. All the articles listed in the blog with acceptance status ( rejected articles were duly informed to the concerned authors) will be published within next 15 days.
Since we had never expected this many number of articles in a shorter duration of just one month after launching, this delay is caused. But now we had established a team of editors and reviewers which will enable us to publish the articles which are cleared by the reviewers within short duration, our overall publishing time will be reduced to less than 30 days in any case.
Again we would like to thank all the authors, reviewers, editors who made this happen within shorter duration of time, hope with you all we will convert ourself into one of the best journal system. The quality of the journal directly depends on the support its author rendering to the journal, we hope to get the same response in the forthcoming months also.
