Interfacial phenomena in the solidification processing of metal matrix composites

Capillary phenomena pertinent to solidification processing of metal matrix composite materials are reviewed. Recent research on the design of wettability measurement methods that are pertinent to metal matrix composite fabrication and overcome limitations of the sessile drop technique is presented. The discussion also addresses non-chemical aspects of wetting of a reinforcement by liquid metal, with emphasis on the infiltration process, and reviews engineering approaches for improved wettability and control of interface microstructure.
