Review on FSP, Composite materials, Hybrid Composite, PRMMC


This is a review paper on FSP and its techniques followed to produce a hybrid composite Materials. Composites are materials in which two phases are combined, usually with strong interfaces between them. They usually consist of a continuous phase called matrix and discontinuous phase in the form of fibers, whiskers or particles called the reinforcement. Considerable interest in composites has been generated in the past because of their outstanding properties especially low weight high strength. The objective of this exertion is to manufacture the Aluminium based hybrid composite by using Friction Stir Processing (FSP). The Hybrid composites are known as it contains more than one fiber or one matrix system in a laminate. Aluminium and its alloys are commonly used in Marine, Concrete, aircraft structures and transportation industries because of their high strength to weight ratio.A6061 and its reinforcements particles reinforced metal matrix composites (PRMMC) was produced by friction stir processing (FSP). The optical and scanning electron microscopy, hardness tests used to characterize the samples. The results indicated that the uniform distribution of reinforcements in A6061 matrix by FSP process and heat treated this can be improve the mechanical properties of samples. Therefore pretending the mechanical performance of a composite plate is very important to assess the protection of the plate. [1, 2, 3, 4, and 5].
