The importance of composites as engineering materials is reflected by the fact that out of over 1600 engineering materials available in the market today more than 200 are composites. These composites initially replaced Cast Iron and Bronze alloys but owing to their poor wear and seizure resistance, they were subjected to many experiments and the wear behavior of these composites were explored to a maximum extent and were reported by number of research scholars for the past 25 years. In the present study, based on the literature review, the effect of Silicon carbide on Stir cast Aluminium Metal Matrix Composites is discussed. Aluminium Metal Matrix Composites with Silicon carbide particle reinforcements 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, a review of different researchers have been made to consolidate some of the aspects of mechanical and wear behavior of Aluminium Metal Matrix Composites reinforced with Silicon carbide particles in both untreated and precipitation hardened condition.

Key words: Aluminium alloy, Metal Matrix Composites, Silicon Carbide, Stir casting, Precipitation hardening
