The limitations of aluminium in most engineering applications has led to the development of aluminium matrix composites with improved microstructural and mechanical properties. Nanoindentation techniques was used in assessing the mechanical properties of fabricated aluminium matrix composites with ferrotitanium and silicon carbide as reinforcements. Results from nanoindentation experiments shows the dependence of modulus of elasticity, microhardness and contact depth on the dispersion of ferrotitanium and silicon carbide reinforcements within the aluminium matrix. Highest nanohardness value was observed in composite with 7 wt. % silicon carbide, while the lowest elastic modulus was recorded in as-cast aluminium. Further analysis of specimens confirmed a decrease in maximum penetration depth with respective increase in the addition of silicon carbide reinforcements in the fabricated composites.
