This book contains an introductory chapter that places the current state of the composites field in historical perspective. An extensive section on synthesis and processing describes in detail both standard and novel fabrication techniques. Composite interfaces are discussed in this volume's final chapter. Its companion volume "Metal Matrix Composites: Mechanisms and Properties" includes sections on strengthening mechanisms, mechanical properties, fracture and fatigue, physical properties, and environmental effects. These two volumes combine to provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of metal matrix composites (MMCs).
