Abstract: The present work mainly investigates the wear behavioral properties of Al6061 / Basalt / ZrO2 Hybrid Metal Matrix Composites. Al6061 / Basalt / Zr02 Hybrid MMCs containing five different wt% (1, 4, 6, 8, 10%) of Natural Basalt rock powder and keeping 2 wt% of Zirconium oxide constant have been fabricated by using a liquid metallurgy (stir casting) method. The dry sliding wear tests were performed using a Pin-on-disc wear testing machine on both composites and a matrix alloys over a different load range, sliding velocity of 1.66m/s and for the various sliding distance of 1-6km. Further, it was observed from the experimental results that the specific wear rate.
