Abstract

Because in-situ composites offer such a wide selection of reinforcement types, size, and volume fractions, understanding the mechanisms controlling mechanical properties will allow more intelligent decisions to be made when tailoring a composite system for a specific application. This article provides an overview of the mechanical properties of discontinuously reinforced metal-ceramic and intermetallic-ceramic composites produced by in-situ techniques. Systems for which the mechanisms controlling mechanical properties are known are emphasized.
