Abstract: Metal matrix composites (MMCs) are amongst different classes of composites. MMCs offer a unique balance of physical and mechanical properties. Aluminum based MMCs have received increasing attention in recent decades as engineering materials with most of them possessing the advantages of high strength, hardness and wear resistance. The experimental investigation of the variation of mechanical properties of Al- fly ash composites samples processed by die casting are reported in this paper. In this case we are taken the casted components are machined to specimen dimensions and different material testing had been conducted to obtain the material properties and characteristics. We are varying mass fraction of and fly ash (5%, 10%, & 15%) and keeping 3%, 6%, 8% sic. We had got well advancements in mechanical properties like tensile, impact strength and hardness with the increase in wt % of reinforcement.
