For the past few decades, aluminium based hybrid composites have been widely used in many industries. Present trend of the cost reduction, durability, reliability, and weight reduction with excellent toughness, resistance to corrosion in the field of automobile, aircraft structure and naval structure has created major impact on the engineering industries. The ceramic reinforced composite materials have relevant properties to satisfy the above requirements. The purpose of this work aimed to investigate the effect of the addition of micro particles to aluminium on the mechanical properties of the composites. The micro composites containing different weight percentage of particles were fabricated using stir casting processes. The mechanical properties such as Tensile strength, Impact strength, hardness and micro structure are to be analyzed.
