The applications of Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) are being increasing day by day within the aerospace, automobile and lots of more industries, due to their improved properties compared to uniform metals. Presently several grades of Aluminium Matrix Composites (AMCs) are utilized in high-tech structural and practical applications including aerospace, defence, locomotive, and thermal management areas, also as in sports and recreation. This trend has been recognized to their greater specific strength and specific stiffness, heat ability, lower coefficient of thermal expansion, better wear resistance, enhanced dimensional stability, and responsiveness to standard metal forming techniques. This report cares with Aluminium Matrix Composites and more specifically on the Aluminium (Al) based carbide (SiC) metal matrix composite Embedded with Copper. the most aim of this project is to see practicality of the Aluminium based carbide metal matrix composite for passenger vehicle lining. Through this dissertation an effort is formed to check the tribological behavior of the Aluminium based carbide metal matrix composite. The composite is formed by metallurgy route followed by hot extrusion. The composites are prepared for the testing, composite of Al and SiC embedded with Copper. the wear and tear test is administered for these composites both at ambient and elevated temperature by using pin on disc method. Pins are made from composite and tested against forged iron disc. the wear and tear affecting parameters like normal load, sliding speed and temperature are varied and tribological properties are observed. Also, the results of the composite are compared with one another. The results reveal that the addition of carbide and copper reduces wear of the composite.
