Abstract : From a review of the literature, an updated evaluation of filament-reinforced electrocomposites is given and the benefits and limitations of the process are summarized. The successful results and properties obtained with electrocomposites from earlier studies are also presented and problems encountered are discussed. Process changes for improving the quality and strength of electrocomposites are proposed. Keywords: Metal matrix composites, Fibrous composites, High strength electrodeposited coatings, Fiber encapsulation.
