Abstract—In this review, the formability characteristics of Aluminium based composites using FEM and statistical tool are discussed. Formability characteristics of Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) have been influenced by many factors viz., temperature, pressure, volume fraction of reinforcement, size and shape of particles. Investigation on wall friction, friction between particles and matrix powder are also presented. Detailed review has been carried out on the workability studies on upsetting of MMCs and forming limit diagrams. The state of the art has been discussed with the help of literatures.
