Surface modification of aluminum alloys to create in situ surface composites by design
Keywords and Phrases
Aluminum matrix surface composites; Composites by design
"With the increasing demand to enhance product competitiveness, the automobile industry is concentrating on weight reduction, which has proven to improve fuel efficiency, reduce exhaust emission and assure enhanced safety and vehicle driving performance. Hence, Aluminum Matrix Composite (AMC) materials reinforced with ceramic particles are most sought after to achieve these goals...Although adding a second phase improves strength, hardness, and wear among other properties, it has detrimental effects on properties such as ductility...This study advances the development of FSP as an effective AMSC fabrication technique"--Introduction, leaf 1.
