SUTD together with research collaborators provide much needed analysis and review of the emerging research on particle reinforced metal matrix nanocomposites with selective laser melting, charting out possibilities for engineering applications.

Metal Matrix Nanocomposites (MMNCs) are increasingly used in industries such as automotive, aerospace and military due to their excellent combination of high strength, thermal stability, ductility and isotropy. However, despite MMNCs’ superior properties and growing interest, the complex processing and inadequate economic efficiency have limited the applications of MMNCs. High energy consumption is still essential to disperse the reinforcement to achieve microstructural homogeneity and advanced mechanical properties in these materials.
