The technology surrounding the manufacture and application of metal matrix composites (MMCs) has been expanding at an enormous rate over recent years. Metal Matrix Composites addresses fundamental and development issues related to the processing and mechanical property characteristics of aluminum and magnesium MMCs, as they apply to components for the automotive industry. Contents include: thixoforming of aluminum-based metal matrix composite systems; lightweight magnesium composites for automotive applications; development of aluminum powder metallurgy composites for cylinder liners; performance of MMC rotors in dynamometer testing; development of co-continuous ceramic composite materials for specific application; and high performance heat sink fabrication issues.
