Applications: magnesium-based metal matrix composites (MMCs)
AbstractThis chapter gives an introduction to different forms and production routes of magnesium-based metal matrix composites (MMCs). Firstly, the different kinds and forms of reinforcements are discussed, followed by the typical casting processes used for processing the MMCs. Powder metallurgical processes have already been described, so we omit these. Subsequently, some examples of the mechanical properties are given, especially at elevated temperatures.
