Selection and Weldability of Aluminum Metal-Matrix Composites
The effective integration of aluminum metal-matrix composites (Al-MMCs) into useful structures and devices often requires an understanding of the weldability of Al-MMCs that includes a thorough knowledge on the effects of various interactions between matrix and reinforcement. This article provides a detailed discussion on weldability and the effect of viscosity, chemical reactions, and solidification on weldability. It discusses different welding processes, namely, gas-tungsten arc welding, gas-metal arc welding, laser-beam welding, electron-beam welding, resistance welding, friction welding, transient liquid phase bonding, and capacitor discharge welding.
