The METCAN (Metal Matrix Composite Analyzer) computer code is used to simulate the nonlinear behavior of select metal matrix composites in order to assess their potential for high temperature structural applications. Material properties for seven composites are generated at a fiber volume ratio of for two bonding conditions (a perfect bond and a weak interphase case) at various temperatures. The METCAN (Metal Matrix Composite Analyzer) computer code is used to simulate the nonlinear behavior of select metal matrix composites in order to assess their potential for high temperature structural : Ho-Jun Lee. The Metal Matrix Composite Analyzer (METCAN) is a computer code developed at Lewis Research Center to simulate the high temperature nonlinear behavior of metal matrix composites. An . METCAN can be used to computationally simulate the non-linear behavior of high temperature metal matrix composites (HT-MMC), thus allowing the potential payoff for the specific application to be assessed. It provides a comprehensive analysis of composite thermal and mechanical : P. L. Murthy.
Titanium metal-matrix composites (MMC) are prime candidate materials for aerospace applications be-cause of their excellent high-temperature longitudinal strength and stiffness and low density compared with nickel- and steel-base materials. This article examines the steps GE Aircraft Engines (GEAE) has taken to develop an induction plasma deposition (IPD) processing method for Cited by: 7. composite materials makes them applicable for elevated-temperature applications. Mg – Al alloys such as AM60 and AZ91 are presently the most prevalent magnesium alloys utilized in the automotive Author: Meysam Haghshenas. Schematic presentation of three shapes of metal matrix composite materials . Combination of Materials for Light Metal Matrix Composites. Reinforcements. Reinforcements for metal matrix composites have a manifold demand profile, which is determined by production and processing and by the matrix system of the composite material. Longer Term Applications Metal matrix composites with high specific stiff-ness and strength could be used in applications in which saving weight is an important factor. In-cluded in this category are robots, high-speed ma-chinery, and high-speed rotating shafts .

Structural components made from high temperature metal matrix composites (HTMMC) will be subjected to both monotonic and cyclic thermal and mechanical loads. The cyclic loads degrade the composite structural integrity in terms of stiffness and strength. What is Cited by: In view of the dynamic capabilities that can be exhibited, this Special Issue will cover all aspects of “Metal Matrix Composites” including: Synthesis (solid, liquid, 2-phase and 3D printing), secondary processing, properties (tensile, compressive, fatigue, impact, creep, tribological, etc.), corrosion behavior and . Metal matrix composites (MMCs), by virtue of their low density, high strength-to-weight ratio, high temperature strength retention, and excellent creep, fatigue and wear resistances, have the potential for replacing cast iron and other materials in engines and brakes.
