Abstract

Advanced light-weight components known as composites from metal matrix are made of an element the alloy matrix with a second phase incorporated and dispersed throughout to improve certain properties. The composite’s property varies according to the remaining phase’s size, shape, and quantity. Because of its unique combination of ceramic and metallic features, it has better mechanical and physical qualities. These materials belong to a new breed of engineered materials that include strong ceramic reinforcement mixed into a metal matrix to enhance various qualities like wear resistance, resisting corrosion, specific endurance, and elasticity. They are therefore very important from a scientific, technological, and business standpoint. This study presents a thorough discussion of the manufacturing processes, mechanical characteristics, and industrial uses of various composites made from metal matrix materials.
