Advances in metal matrix composites.


Advances in metal matrix composites.

Ed. by Lorella Ceschini and Roberto Montanari.

Trans Tech Publications


156 pages



Materials science forum; v.678


A dozen invited, peer-reviewed papers report recent developments in producing, processing, and applying the materials, emphasizing light metal matrix composites based on aluminum, magnesium, titanium alloys reinforced by particles, nano-dispersoids, and long fibers. Drawing from both experimental research and computer simulations, they consider such topics as simulating the mechanical behavior of metal matrix composites, friction welding particle reinforced aluminum-based composites, processing lightweight metal matrix composites with in situ gas/liquid reactions, and producing and characterizing aluminum iron powder composites with ferromagnetic properties.
