A Hybrid Way for Optimizing Magnesium Matrix Composites Preparing Method


Article Preview

Magnesium matrix composites are prepared with a hybrid optimizing metod here. Different SiC volume fractions, processing temperature and stirring time have different influence on tensile strength and elongation of SiC; but how to find out the satisfied treating parameters is an unavoidable question, a hybrid method is put out and experiments prove the effectiveness of research work.
