Abstract—The present work aims to develop Aluminum metal matrix composites by incorporating of reinforcements such that combination of best properties could be achieved. The metal base was selected was Aluminum and it is reinforced with varying volume percentage of Silicon carbide Magnesium and Fly ash. These AMC were developed by using crucible casting technique, in which predetermined reinforcement is added to the molten matrix is stirred well to obtain desired castings. The Rockwell hardness and Impact tests revealed that composite with Mg Sic Fly ash shows highest hardness value of HRB and Joules which is better than base alloy as well as tensile is more Mg and SiC Fly ash shows highest Tensile strength value. Highly reinforced composites show higher hardness and Wallop and Moderate tensile strength variations due to the agglomeration of particles. The network composite, the re enforcer material, the volume and state of the fortification, the area of the support, and the creation technique would all be able to be fluctuated to achieve required property. The composite has to be prepared by crucible casting proficiency and has to be analyzed various mechanical properties. Here we determine the hardness value of the composite material and impact strength as well as tensile strength of the material is analyzed.

Index Terms—Aluminum, reinforced composites, silicon carbide, surface hardness, tensile strength.
