Abstract: Current engineering applications require materials that are stronger, lighter and less expensive. Aluminum Matrix Composites (AMC) are the most versatile of the Metal Matrix Composites because of number of factors which include ease of processing, relatively low cost of Al matrices, good combination of physical and mechanical properties and excellent tribological properties. Literatures reveal that a good number of research work has been carried out on utilising ceramic particulates as reinforcing material compared to agro waste derivatives. In this regard, a number of works has been published on the potentials of the agro waste ashes as complementing reinforcements. K. K. Alaneme and E. O. Adewuyi studied the mechanical behavior of AlMg-Si alloy matrix composites reinforced with Alumina and Bamboo Leaf Ash (BLA). Alumina (Al2O3) particulates complemented with 0, 2, 3, and 4 %wt. BLA were utilized to prepare 10%wt. of reinforcement in Al-Mg-Si alloy matrix using double stir casting method. As a continuation of their initiation, in this work mechanical behavior studies were conducted on Alumina (Al2O3) particulates complemented with 5, 6, and 7 %wt. BLA of total 10 %wt. of reinforcement.
