The aim of this research work is to study about the casting of aluminium matrix composite with varying weight percentage of silicon carbide and the mechanical properties, wear characteristics. Aluminium matrix composites of varying Sic content (5%, 10%and 15%) is prepared by stir casting process. Brinell hardness, tensile strength, and impact strength of the prepared composites are. The results showed that introducing Sic reinforcements in aluminum (Al) matrix increased hardness and tensile strength and 15 wt. % Sic reinforced AMC showed maximum hardness and tensile strength. Microstructural test is also performed.
