The aim of this Ebook is to provide a comprehensive overview of
the basic production techniques for manufacturing of metal-based
graded materials. A concise description of experimental methods
and short analysis of some specific structures obtained are presented.
In order to provide an easy-readable text, general mathematical
models and specific tools for management of graded structures in
metal matrix composites are presented separately in appendices.
The movement of solid particles (reinforce phase) in gravity and
centrifugal casting are widely discussed. Basic equations, which
describe solid particle movement in case of Lorenz force application
at graded structure production techniques and comprehensive model
of physical phenomena in gasar technology, can also be found in
this Ebook. The Ebook is useful for colleagues, who work in the
field of graded structures and materials, and who need compact informative
view of recent experimental and theoretical approaches in this area.
