The purpose of this study was to evaluate the maximum stress and maximum deformation of aluminum material AlSi10Mg (b) and composite material AlSi10Mg (b) + SiC*/15p if bending tests were carried out for the application of bilge plates and on the body of the ship by finite element method. The application of these two materials is an alternative material for ship building. Modeling and analysis are done using ANSYS version 14.5 software. The results indicated that the aluminum material AlSi10Mg (b) always has a higher value for maximum stress and maximum deformation compared to the composite material AlSi10Mg (b) + SiC*/15p), even though the difference is relatively small. Overall the impact and implication of this research showed that composite material reinforcement SiC could reduce the occurrence of large maximum stresses.
