ABSTRACT. The effects of compaction pressure and particle size on the mechanical property of Iron-Ceramic based samples are reported in this study. The samples were of cross sectional area 34.0 x 35.0 mm2 with varying thickness 20.8 – 22.10 mm. Particle size of 25µm was used for both Iron and Ceramic. The samples were made to solids by pressing the materials together at a pressure of 300 bars. Results showed that Iron addition and particle size greatly influenced the mechanical stability of the samples. With the particle size, it was revealed that samples were dynamically stable between 10-20 and 40-50 % weights of Iron in composites. The sample was found to have maximum strength for 50 % weight of Iron in composites in the compression test analyses.
