Abstract: Aluminium compound materials saw to be the best choice with its exceptional utmost of sketching out the material to give required properties. Aluminium alloy composites are expanding broad affirmation for aeronautics application in perspective on their high strength combined with low density. In the present work, an endeavour is made to prepare and focus the tensile and compressive behaviour of Hollow Glass Microspheres (HGM) reinforced Aluminium alloy LM13 based syntactic foam. Stir casting method was used to manufacture the aluminium alloy LM13 based syntactic foam with hollow glass microspheres (HGM) as space holders in 10 v%, 15 v% and 20 v% of concentration. Based on ASTM benchmarks, the composite samples were prepared. Results indicate that there is notable improvement in compressive strength while the tensile strength is on the lower side when observed in reference to the unreinforced LM13 alloy.
