Abstract

Aluminum based metal matrix composites have many applications such as aircraft and aerospace components, electrical fittings and connectors, military and automotive purposes due to their excellent physical and mechanical properties. Addition of reinforcements into the metallic matrix improves the stiffness, specific strength, wear, creep and fatigue properties compared to the other conventional engineering materials. This paper presents the review of the work done on effect of reinforcements in aluminum alloy and its effect on the properties of matrix material.
