Friction Stir Processing (FSP) is the technique derived from the Friction Stir Welding (FSW) that has been introduced since in 1991. Many researchers developed new Metal Matrix Composite (MMC) in order to enhance the mechanical and physical properties of the base material. The base material also known as matrix functions to spread the force applied over the surface and to protect the structure of the reinforcement. In this study, the MMC is form compose of Carbon Nanotube as the reinforcement material and Aluminium as the matrix by FSP technique. Many studies have been carried out by the scientist and researches about the MMC produced by FSP with different reinforcement and matrix materials. So, the main objective of this study is to analyse the effect of Carbon Nanotube as the reinforcement material of the Aluminium Matrix Composite in term of tensile strength. There are several major steps done in order to complete the study. Firstly, Carbon Nanotube reinforced Aluminium Matrix Composite is produced by using the CNC Bridgeport Machine. Secondly, cut the MMC produced into the dogbone shape for the tensile test by using the EDM Wire-Cut Machine and lastly, test the samples for the tensile strength by using the Ultimate Tensile Machine thus analyse the results. The results show that the Carbon Nanotube give effect for the Aluminium Matrix Composite as the tensile strength of the MMC are decreased from the base material, Aluminium. But the ductility MMC is improved compared to the base material. Lastly, this study will give good contribution for the material and manufacturing study.
