Özet

Metal matrix composites (MMCs) are engineering materials that their increasingly replacing of a number of conventional materials in automotive, aerospace, and sports industries is driven by the demand for lightweight, high specific strength and stiffness. Their wide application as structural materials needs proper development of suited joining processes. Friction stir welding (FSW) is a fairly new solid state welding process for joining metals using thermal energy produced from localized friction forces.
