This paper deal with a study of research going in the area of composite materials, especially metal matrix composites (MMC), as compared to Polymer based composites; MMC possesses higher strength, stiffness and at the same time they can be developed as wear resistant material document. Also it has been reported from many research studies that MMC does have better creep resistance and thermal management. Case studies have been included in this paper to demonstrate the research work being carried.
Key Words: Metal Matrix composites, Powder Metallurgy, stir cast method reinforcing element, wear resistance
