In Aerospace and Automotive industries, the
demand for lighter materials is increasing drastically.
The main advantage of Magnesium Metal Matrix
Composites over Aluminum Metal Matrix Composites
and there is an additional (15-20%) weight saving.
Magnesium reinforced with carbonized, uncarbonized
Egg shell and alumina have significant advantage over
conventional materials. Generally, these reinforcements
are used to improve the hardness and tensile strength of
metal matrix composites and also improve the corrosion
resistance of materials. In this present work, we have
performed two specimen of Magnesium with
reinforcement, 4% of Alumina and 6% carbonized and
uncarbonized Egg shell using casting assisted by stir
