The influence of process parameter in stir casting play a major role on the development of aluminium reinforced silicon carbide particle (Al-SiCp) composite. This study aims to investigate the influence of process parameters on wear and density properties of Al-SiCp composite using stir casting technique. Experimental data are generated based on a four-factors-five-level central composite design of response surface methodology. Analysis of variance is utilized to confirm the adequacy and validity of developed models considering the significant model terms. Optimization of the process parameters adequately predicts the Al-SiCp composite properties with stirring speed as the most influencing factor. The aim of optimization process is to minimize wear and maximum density. The multiple objective optimization (MOO) achieved an optimal value of 14 wt% reinforcement fraction (RF), 460 rpm stirring speed (SS), 820 °C processing temperature (PTemp) and 150 secs processing time (PT). Considering the optimum parametric combination, wear mass loss achieved a minimum of 1 x 10-3g and maximum density value of 2.780g/mm3 with a confidence and desirability level of 95.5%.
