Editors: J. Paulo Davim (University of Aveiro, Portugal)
Book Description:
Recently, the utilization of metal matrix composites (MMC's) has increased in various areas of industry due to their special mechanical and physical properties. MMCs, particularly aluminium based composites have a high specific strength and stiffness at elevated temperatures as well as fatigue, corrosion and wear resistance. Therefore MMCs have the potential to replace conventional materials in various fields of application such as automotive, aeronautical and aerospace, as well as in other advanced industries. This new book reviews current research on metal matrix composites. (Imprint: Nova Press)
