Abstract: This research focused on the study of the influence of different sintering temperature of physical and mechanical behavior of Aluminum Metal Matrix Composites (Al MMC) reinforced with Nano alumina (Al2O3). Al MMC reinforced with rigid ceramic particulates have become increasingly important for structural applications in aerospace, automotive and other transport industries, because of their high specific strength and modulus, good wear resistance as well as ease of processing. In this work, the influence of sintering temperature was investigated on its mechanical and microstructure properties. These Al MMCs have been traditionally fabricated by powder metallurgy (PM) method. The experiments were performed on 5%, 10% weight percentage of Nano Al2O3 on different sintering temperature. In this study, the specimens of the composite were sintered with different temperature which are 5800C 6000Cand 6200C. Then, the influence of different sintering temperature on physical and mechanical behavior of the composite was studied. The specimens were investigated on their mechanical and microstructure properties.
