Individual and Combined Effect of Reinforcements on Stir Cast Aluminium Metal Matrix Composites-A Review
Pages : 922-934
In the present study, based on the literature review, the individual and combined effect of reinforcements on Aluminium Metal Matrix Composites is discussed. These Aluminium Metal Matrix composites with individual and multiple reinforcements (Hybrid MMCs) are finding increased applications in aerospace, automobile, space, underwater, and transportation applications. This is mainly due to improved mechanical and tribological properties like strong, stiff, abrasion and impact resistant, and is not easily corroded. In the present scenario, this paper guides researchers and engineers towards proper selection of materials by considering improvement in material properties for relevant application and importance of liquid metal processing technique during manufacturing of Metal Matrix Composites.
