Development of Metal Matrix Composite for high performance Aluminium Components
The suggested project aims to develop MMC (Metal Matrix Composite) for high performance aluminium components. Focus will be on Al-SiCp where silicon carbide particles with suitable aluminium alloy form a material with excellent properties. Characteristic for MMC is above all increased durability, increased strength at higher temperatures, good stiffness, good dimensional stability and good damping capacity. Aluminium as a material has an incredible potential.
