Metal Matrix Composites
November 15, 2006
Metal Powder Industries Foundation (Princeton, N.J.) released Metal Matrix Composites by Nikhilesh Chawla and Krishan K. Chawla. In the last few years, an increase in applications of MMCs has taken place, particularly in the areas of automotive, aerospace, electronics and recreation. These include continuous fiber reinforced MMCs for cables in power transmission, high-temperature superconducting wires, particulate MMCs in civilian aircraft and automotive applications, and high-volume fraction, high thermal conductivity substrates for electronic packaging. This 401-page book seeks to address these issues in a thorough and cohesive manner along with providing the reader with a basic understanding of MMCs.
