    Abstract :

    Aluminium based metal matrix composites (AMMC) containing beryl (10%, 20% and 30%) were fabricated using two powder metallurgy routes i.e. microwave and vacuum sintering respectively and investigated for the sake of optimization of mechanical properties like constitutive and wear. The material has a novelty of being fabricated using a mineralized reinforcement like beryl and strong interfacial coherency can be maintained which has finally been fabricated and engineered for better combination of strength i.e. hardness, YS and UTS and ductility as confirmed from the constitutive parameters like n, K etc. It has been observed that the microwave sintered samples exhibit better density and this better densification leads to better sliding wear properties.
