Friction stir processing (FSP) was used to incorporate TiO2 particles into the matrix of A356 alloy to form composite material. The mechanical properties of the composite material are strongly dependant Aluminium A356 on the microstructural parameters of the system matrix-reinforcement, a judicious selection of a certain number of variables has to be achieved to optimize the properties of the composite. Different tool rotation speed of 1500 r/min and 2000 r/min and constant travel speed of 30 mm/min were used in this study. The results indicated that the uniform distribution of TiO2 particles in A356 matrix by FSP process can improve the mechanical properties of specimens.
