Research project

Composite peening - a novel processing technique for graded reinforced metal matrix composites (MMC)

  • Development and validation o a process for the production of graded reinforced aluminum matrix composites
  • Investigation of material combinations as well as their influence on the mechanical properties with regard to the optimization of the lightweight construction aspect
  • Characterization and evaluation of the produced composite materials against conventional surface hardening processes
