Metal matrix composites (MMCs) possess excellent physical and mechanical properties. The filler reinforcement into the metallic matrix improves the stiffness, specific strength, wear, creep and fatigue properties compared to the conventional engineering materials. The present work is a study of the effect of reinforcement of different types of fillers in metal matrix and their merits and demerits. Effect of different dispersion on the mechanical properties like tensile strength, strain, hardness, wear and fatigue of MMCs and its different applications are also highlighted in the paper.
