Hybrid Aluminum Matrix Composites (HAMCs) have been fabricated using powder metallurgy methods. The reinforcements used were alumina (Al2O3) particles and chopped carbon (c)-fibers. The reinforcements were mixed and homogenized in a rotary ball mill. Then the powder mixtures were pressed into a solid mass using uniaxial press and then sintered in a controlled environment. The microstructures were analyzed using scanning electron microscope (SEM) and the different phases formed were detected using X-ray diffraction technology. The mechanical properties such as hardness, tensile stress, and ductility were determined. The initial study found that the aluminum carbide formed in the matrix-fiber interface. This resulted a lower tensile strength of HAMCs. To prevent the carbide formation in the matrix-fiber interface, the fiber reinforcements were coated with metal nano particles.
