Book Description

This book gives in-depth coverage of Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) focusing on micro and nano-reinforcements including hybrid structures, and applications like tribological and corrosion behavior, heat exchanger and so forth. Each chapter covers different perspectives of micro/nano reinforcement and related applications. Major topics covers include new-age reinforcement, fracture, and corrosion behavior, tribological, elastic, elastoplastic, and thermal behavior of MMCs.

Features:

  • Presents detailed analysis on new age reinforcements in Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs).
  • Discusses application-based analysis of MMCs.
  • Covers details about convergence of hybrid composite from conventional alloys.
  • Includes mechanisms and effects of various reinforcement on pertinent properties.
  • Reviews properties and applications of various MMCs.

This book aims at graduate students, researchers and professionals in micro/nano science & technology, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, metallurgy, and composites.
