Tribological Studies on Aluminum Based Metal Matrix Hybrid Composite: An Overview
The use of high performance wear resistance material for tribological applications has been the driving force
behind the development of hybrid composite materials. The use of mono ceramic reinforcement in Al matrix composite
increases mechanical as well as tribological properties obviously. The new kind of composite called as Hybrid composites in
which properties of more than one suitable reinforcement have been exploited to improve the overall properties of
composite including tribological properties. This paper give an overview about tribological properties of hybrid composites
and current development.
