Abstract : Even though several production processes available for producing metal matrix composites the process stir casting got more importance and plays a prominent role. The main merits in stir casting are simplicity, applicability and flexibility with bulk mass production in low cost criteria. The significant issue of this procedure is to get adequate wetting of molecule by fluid metal and to get a homogenous scattering of the particulates. This review is on the process utilized in stir casting such a role as, how the base metal is liquefied, at what temperature and state it is to be kept up, what conditions the particulates are included and how the mixing time and mixing speed influence the final composite material. in this paper how the stirrer design and mechanism of feeding effects the final prepared composite also presented. Some limitations of stir casting process are also discussed in this paper. Mechanical characterization of aluminium metal matrix composites also discussed in this paper.
