Steel Matrix Composites (MMC's) have came upon an elevated use in quite a few industries duetotheir distinct mechanical and actual houses. they seem to be a composite fabric with at the very least constituent elements, one being a steel and are made by way of dispersing a reinforcing fabric right into a steel matrix. The markets are: telecommunications, automobile, energy semiconductor, opto-electronics, army and aerospace, heavy  Read more...

It became obvious that segregation of CNTs due to their strong van der Waals forces often produces material defects, which decreases the material’s properties. Despite CNT-reinforced MMCs having received the least attention, they are being considered for use in structural applications because of their high specific strength as well as functional materials for their exciting thermal and electrical characteristics. Light MMCs are of great interest due to their potential for reducing CO2 emission in lightweight design.

Vr is the total volume fraction of reinforcement [76]. 8 Cu is alloyed with carbide-forming elements in order to improve interfacial bonding, which is otherwise so weak that thermal conductivity goes down to really poor values (less than 100 W/mK). % Ti to Cu results in the formation of TiC on carbon fibers (CuTi2 remains in copper alloy), which improves the interfacial cohesion [80]. Even with such an effect, the resulting thermal conductivities are in the range 110–200 W/mK. The use of continuous carbon fibers and a novel processing technique based on sputtering produces anisotropic materials with a thermal conductivity in the direction of the aligned fibers of 800 W/mK (the intrinsic conductivity of the carbon fibers in that direction is about 1100 W/mK) [81].
