Elastic Anisotropy in Particle/Fiber Reinforced Aluminum Metal Matrix Composites
Metal matrix composites hold high promises as engineering materials. In order to take full advantage of their promising properties, the complex nature of the composites must be understood. Some questions thus arising; how do different manufacturing processes influence the microstructure and how can the mechanical properties of the composites be explained and predicted from knowledge of their microstructure.
