This work deals with fabricating or producing aluminium based metal matrix composite and thenstudying its microstructure and mechanical properties such as tensile strength, impact strength and wear behavior of produced test specimen. In this present study a modest attempt has been made to develop aluminium based MMCs with reinforcing material with an objective to develop a conventional low cast method of producing MMCs and to obtain homogeneous dispersion of reinforced material. To achieve this

Experiment has been conducted by varying weight fraction of Sic, Fly Ash, Redmud. The result shown that the increase in addition of Fly Ash is giving better result when compared with Redmud.
