Metal Matrix Composites: Theory, Techniques, and Applications

Abstract

Numerous researches have been carried out on the developments of metal matrix composites (MMCs) in various applications. However, the main problem related to their processing is that controlling the balance between different parameters, such as ductility, strength, toughness, and so on, has created impediments on the way of MMC development due to the lack of knowledge in theory and proper processing technique for a particular application. As a result, its areas of applications become limited. Therefore, proper selection of matrix and reinforced materials and suitable fabrication technique could be fruitful for desired applications. Thus, crucial related theories, processing techniques, most important properties, and various advanced applications of MMCs have been focused in this chapter.
