Metal Matrix Composites: Custom-made Materials for Automotive and Aerospace Engineering / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
Since the properties of MMCs can be directly designed "into" the material, they can fulfill all the demands set by design engineers.
This book surveys the latest results and development possibilities for MMCs as engineering and functional materials, making it of utmost value to all materials scientists and engineers seeking in-depth background information on the potentials these materials have to offer in research, development and design engineering.
