Microstructural Modification and Surface Hardness Improvement in Al-Mo Friction Stir Surface Composites

Molybdenum-reinforced aluminum matrix surface composites have been fabricated using friction stir processing. The Mo reinforcement results in an increase in the hardness and a decrease in the grain size. The Mo particle size and its dependence on the …

Corrosion Behavior of Aluminum Surface Composites with Metallic, Ceramic, and Hybrid Reinforcements Using Friction Stir Processing

The study focuses on the effect of mono and combined addition of metallic and ceramic reinforcement particles on the microstructural and corrosion behavior of surface composites fabricated by friction stir processing. Molybdenum, possessing higher …
