Impact of Fly Ash on the Aluminium Metal Matrix Composites: A Review

Vishal Kumar , Surjit Angra and Satnam Singh


Composite materials are gaining popularity in the advanced 21st century because of their excellent characteristics in a wide range of fields, including transportation, architecture, engineering, the construction industry, sports, medicine, and the biomedical field. Enhancements in performance in the sectors of aviation and automobiles drew a lot of attention to aluminum metal matrix composites (AMMCs). Nowadays, factories are releasing a wide variety of trash into the environment. All garbage has an effect on the natural world. Fly Ash (FA), a by-product of thermal power plants, contributes to pollution. Despite this, there are numerous modern applications of FA. Because they are inexpensive, low in density, and widely accessible as waste byproducts in a thermal power generating plant, FA particles may find application in metal matrix composites (MMCs). This research explored using FA as a reinforcement in various composites, beginning with those made of pure aluminum and progressing to hybrid composites that combine the two materials. This article aims to observe the morphology characteristics of AMMCs, including their wear resistance, in addition to their mechanical characteristics, including hardness, tensile strength, flexural strength, and impact strength. According to the available literature, stir casting is the most extensive utilized method for processing materials in the liquid state because of its ease of use and low production cost.
