Abstract: Over the two decades, researchers and manufacturers of automotive and aerospace appliances have paid much attention and interest to metal matric composites (MMC) due to their unique properties. This paper focus on the special characteristics of Metal Matrix Composites of Aluminum Al5056 reinforced with Carbon Nano Tube (CNT) in different weight ratios of 0.4%, 0.7% and 1.1% of base material. Stir-casting technique is utilized to prepare the composites in line with ASTM standards. The specimens are tested for electrical conductivity, corrosion and wear features. Further the internal structure of these composites is studied by using the SEM Analysis. It is found from the results that by adding reinforcement the composites are affected and SEM analysis of AMMNCs reveal a uniform distribution of CNT in the alloy of Aluminum.
