This paper focuses on improving energy absorption through a series of heat treatment and quenching in medium, presence of nanoparticle. The characterisation of the experiment was to determine the suitable combination of composition factors: temperature, soaking time, and the medium that consist of nanoparticle on magnesium alloy surface structure to improve the energy absorption using quenching in nanofluids. The diameter and thickness of the specimen are 6 mm and 10 mm, respectively. All specimens undergo heat treatment based on the temperature of the furnace and the soaking time of the specimen in the furnace, which will be submerged into three medium distilled water, and the addition of a 0.1% wt carbon-nanotube (CNT) and 0.1% wt nano-silica. The addition of CNT and nano-silica shows an increment of 106.68%% and 59.30% for energy absorption, respectively, when compared to the controlled sample. Later microscopy has performed on the specimen to correlate the addition of nanoparticles in the heat treatment and improved energy absorption by EDS analysis on the material composition on the specimen’s surface. Therefore, this paper reveals factors of heat treatment and the presence of CNT and Nano silica effects on enhancing magnesium alloy energy absorption: UTS and yield strength using quenching method.
