Abstract: In the present scenario of manufacturing, Aluminum plays an important role in the field of new materials. Aluminum alloys, because of its low density and excellent strength, toughness, and resistance to corrosion, find important applications in the aerospace field. In the modern manufacturing, process graphene is widely used for making composite materials due to its novel properties like electrical conductivity, optical property, mechanical properties, and thermal properties. Graphene, one of the allotropes of elemental carbon, is a planar monolayer of carbon atoms arranged into a two-dimensional (2D) honeycomb lattice with a carbon-carbon bond. Graphene has the highest elastic modulus and strength. In present research work, Aluminium 6061 is used as a matrix and graphene as a reinforcement and modal analysis is done using Al 6061 with varying percentage of Graphene.
