Recent Trends in the Manufacture of Composites by Friction Stir Processing
Yong-Ha Jeong, Sung-Tae Hong, Ho-Chul Seo
  In various manufacturing industries including automotive industries, the use of lightweight materials is rapidly increasing. In the use of lightweight materials, it is obvious that enhancing their mechanical or material properties without significant weight increase is extremely beneficial. One method to enhance material properties of a lightweight material while maintaining its light weight is fabricating metal matrix composites (MMC) by adding reinforcements to the material. In the present study, recent trends in the manufacture of MMC by friction stir processing are briefly reviewed.
Key Words: Lightweight materials, Metal matrix composites, Friction stir processing
