This proceedings volume will contain papers based on original work in metal-matrix composites for high performance applications. The purpose of the symposium is to discuss the technical challenges pertaining to high performance applications, and it will cover all relevant aspects of MMC technology such as selection/development of a suitable matrix alloy, processing techniques, microstructural characterization, and mechanical properties. Issues related to aerospace and space applications of MMCs will be emphasized, while processing, strengthening mechanisms, and properties issues will also be discussed.
From the 2001 TMS Fall Meeting, which was held in Indianapolis, Indiana, November 4-8, 2001.
To gain a flavor of the content of the volume, a number of supporting pages (e.g., table of contents, subject index) are available for complimentary download in portable document format.
