D. Premkumar, R. Murugan, G. Purushoathaman
Abstract: Friction stir process has proven to be a promising approach for joining aluminium matrix composites Aluminium matrix composites are progressively replacing conventional monolithic alloys in several applications such as in aircraft, automotive and marine industries to enhance the product capabilities. Friction Stir Process (FSP) is a potential candidate to make AMC layer on matrix material without any defect. In order to improve the various mechanical and wear properties of the aluminium matrix material, the composite layers will be made through FSP with different volume fraction and various (Micro and nano scale) ceramic particle sizes. Since the quality of the composites depends on process parameters of FSP. This review paper provides an overview of the FSP of AMC materials. Specific attention and critical assessment have been given to (a) the macrostructure and microstructure of AMC joints, (b) the evaluation of mechanical properties of joints, and (c) the wear of FSP tools due to the presence of reinforcement materials in aluminium matrices
