Conventional monolithic materials have limitations in achieving good combination of strength, stiffness, toughness and density. To overcome these shortcomings and to meet the ever increasing demand of modern day technology, composites are most promising materials of recent interest. Metal matrix composites (MMCs) possess significantly improved properties including high specific strength, specific modulus, damping capacity and good wear resistance compared to unreinforced alloys. Among the MMC’s aluminum composites are predominant in use due to their low weight and high strength. The key features of MMC’s are specific strength and stiffness, excellent wear resistance, high electrical and thermal conductivity. The present investigation aims at the development of Aluminium based E-Glass and Flyash particulate reinforced hybrid metal matrix composites. The test specimens are prepared as per ASTM standard size by turning and facing operations to conduct tensile and compression test.
