Abstract: OIn past few decades use of Aluminium Alloys and Aluminium Metal Matrix Composites have increased tremendously. Due to their light weight, corrosion resistance and excellent electrical and thermal conductivity they are fit many automotive and aeronautical applications. In this paper analysis of effect of SiC reinforcement on microstructure and hardness of Al 6061 and Al 7075 is presented. It is clearly evident that, addition SiC to base material changes its microstructural grain formation and size, uniform distribution of grain in the material will enhances mechanical properties. Also the hardness increases with increasing in weight percent of reinforcement composition.
