Description

Since the properties of MMCs can be directly designed "into" the material, they can fulfill all the demands set by design engineers.
This book surveys the latest results and development possibilities for MMCs as engineering and functional materials, making it of utmost value to all materials scientists and engineers seeking in-depth background information on the potentials these materials have to offer in research, development and design engineering.
Fundamentals of MMCs
Particles, fibers, and short fibers for MMC reinforcement
Preforms for reinforcements of light metals
Aluminum-matrix composites
Production of composites by thermal coating processing
Cutting of Al-MMCs
Mechanical behaviour and fatigue of metal matrix composites
Interfaces in metal matrix composites
Metal matrix composites by powder metallurgy
Spray compacting - an alternative process for MMC-Al alloys
"... surveys the latest results and developments in the use of metal matrix composites for these industries."
