Abstract : Metal matrix composites (MMCs) have been heavily studied over the past thirty years. During that period, many proposals have been made to develop a matrix alloy that was compatible with the reinforcing phase. However, for one reason or another, the technology has continued to focus on conventional alloys and fabrication practices.
