A REVIEW ON MECHANICAL AND TRIBOLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES
Metal matrix composites with individual and multiple particle reinforcements are finding growing use in aerospace, vehicle, space, undersea, and transportation applications due to the combined effect of reinforcements on Aluminium MMC. Improved mechanical and tribological qualities such as strength, stiffness, abrasion, impact, and wear resistance are the key reasons for this. MMCs have evolved as a significant material class that has seen increased use in recent years. Due to machining challenges, these materials can only be used in a restricted number of applications. Extrinsic parameters and intrinsic parameters are the main machining parameters that govern machinability characteristics (particulate size, volume fraction, and type of reinforcement). With a focus on the liquid-state metal processing method, this study helps engineers and researchers choose the appropriate materials in the relevant sector based on their attributes and the various techniques utilized in the manufacture of metal matrix composites.
