In the last few years, metal matrix composites (MMC) have shown a prominent class of materials for structural, wear, thermal, transportation, and electrical applications. There are numerous techniques available for making particle-reinforced Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) starting from the powder metallurgy method to casting techniques. Among the whole liquid stir, the production route is versatile because of its simplicity. Same as there are several base metals to produce MMCs among them Aluminium plays a vital role. The present work is focused on studying the various mechanical properties such as ultimate tensile strength (UTS), yield strength, hardness, and microstructure behavior of composite of aluminum 2024 alloy and also determine the best reinforcement material and best-suited method to fabricate the aluminum 2024 composites.
