Linear Friction Welding (LFW) of metal matrix composites

Abstract:

Metal matrix composites (MMCs) offer higher specific stiffness and strength, better wear resistance and greater thermal stability compared to the corresponding unreinforced alloys. One of the outstanding challenges in the use of aluminium based MMCs concerns their joining, since traditional fusion welding rocesses generally lead to microstructural defects and, consequently, to a general decrease in their mechanical properties. These problems are significantly reduced by the use of solid state...
