The study was conducted to investigate the general properties and processing methods of metal matrix composites in comparison with polymer matrix composites and ceramic matrix composites. In addition, the properties of the most widely used metal matrix composites (aluminum and magnesium) were also studied. The information was collected from published online articles and journals on metal matrix composites. From the study, I found out that while metal matrix composites have been widely used in the aerospace and automobile industry, their properties are still being researched for further development and applications.
