A Review Paper on Stir Casting of Reinforced Aluminium Metal Matrix Composite (MMC)

Gagandeep Singh, Ashwani Kumar


This paper deals about the importance of composites as engineering materials which is reflected by the fact that most
of the materials which are available in the market are composites. These composites replaced cast iron and bronze
alloys due to their poor wear and seizure resistance. Due to the wide choice of materials, today's engineers are posed
with a big challenge for the right selection of a material and the right selection of a manufacturing process for an
application. There are more than 50,000 materials available to engineers for the design and manufacturing of
products for various applications. In the present study, based on literature review, the effect of Boron 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 it is not easily corroded. In a review of different researchers have been made to consolidate some
of the aspects of mechanical and wear behaviour of Aluminium Metal Matrix Composites reinforced with Boron
Carbide particles.
