Under the scientific students activity for mechanical engineering department in Engineering college , organized, a training course titled ‘’Characterization of Metal Matrix Composites‘’ presented by Dr. Vineet Tirth on 21-22/03/2017 where 9 students attended . The following is scientific content summery of the training course:
Metal Matrix Composites (MMC) are tailor made materials finding extensive applications in industries. The students were introduced about the manufacturing methods of MMCs and their testing procedures. The test standards for micrography, tensile testing, hardness testing and wear testing were explained to students. Students were demonstrated how to examine the optical microstructures, SEM micrographs, SPM, EDAX and XRD results. Students were explained how to characterize the MMC correlating microstructures and properties.
