Aluminium alloy materials found to the best alternative with its unique capacity of designing the materials to give required properties. Aluminium alloy Metal Matrix Composites (AMMCs) are gaining wide spread acceptance for automobile, industrial, and aerospace applications because of their low density, high strength and good structural rigidity. In this paper, an attempt is made to examine the effect of influential parameters such as type of reinforcement, size of the reinforcing particle and weight percentage on mechanical properties. Stir casting technique has been employed to prepare the composites. The response parameters were tensile strength, impact strength and density. The design of experiments (DOE) approach using taguchi method was employed to analyze the mechanical behaviour of hybrid composites. Fuzzy approach were used to investigate the optimal combination of influencing parameters on the mechanical behaviour. Â© 2015 Elsevier Ltd.
