Developing production technology tries to respond to unlimited human needs. Meeting these needs requires the development of new products or an increase in the supply of raw materials
Although polymer-based, recycled and natural resources are used as raw materials, it does not reduce the importance of metal-based structures. However, there is a need to use these metal-based materials at lower costs or to improve their existing properties.
This book examines the sectoral development of the Fundamentals of Metal-Matrix Composites in 7 chapters. Chapter One, elaborates on the types of Metal-Matrix Composites and their processing techniques, microstructure, mechanical properties, and practical applications in various fields of engineering. Chapter two is about fully understanding how Metal-Matrix Diamond cutting tools are engineered to solve the complexities of machining DTC materials and aid in displacing machining operations with grinding processes that use engineered tools based on the needs of the industrial engineer. In Chapter Three, the current state of Metal-Matrix Composites are given. Production methods and systems of MMCs, matrix and reinforcement materials; conventional, solid-state, and other welding methods are discussed. Chapter Four, analyzes a comprehensive review on advances and trends of ALMMCs for various engine components like crank shafts, connecting rods, glass shafts, cylinder liners, cylinder heads, valves, etc. Chapter Five, examines how complex geometry designs can be produced easily thanks to the developing production techniques and the increase in the resulting performance products. The production of difficult, complex, or difficult to assemble parts in additive manufacturing and the advantages it provides to metal-matrix composites are discussed. In Chapter Six, Additive Manufacturing technologies, the latest developments in materials used in the aerospace industry, and their usage areas in these sectors are emphasized. The applications of AM technology in the aerospace industry and the future needs of aviation materials are emphasized. Finally, in Chapter Seven, the role of metal-matrix structures with complex geometry in additive manufacturing is discussed.
