Composites are most successful materials used for recent works in the industry. Metal composites possess significantly improved properties including high tensile strength, toughness, hardness, low density and good wear resistance compared to alloys or any other metal. There has been an increasing interest in composites containing low density and low cost reinforcements. Among various reinforced materials used, fly ash is one of the most inexpensive and low density reinforcement available in large quantities as waste product during combustion of coal in thermal power plants as well as in the brick factory and rice mill. Hence, composites with fly ash with Al 7075 as reinforcement are likely to overcome the cost barrier as well as the different physical and mechanical properties for widely used in the automotive and space craft applications.
