Abstract: Aluminum metal matrix composites (Al-MMCs) is a one of the most demanding engineering material due to the combination of their light weight, excellent mechanical and tribological properties. To enhance the promising advantages of Al-MMCs, microwave sintering (MWS) is an ideal and emerging technique. The unique advantages of MWS of MMCs are ascribed to the size and distribution of the reinforcement, as well as to the grain size of the matrix along with uniform and efficient heating. The objective of this comprehensive review was to highlight the viability of sintering Al-MMC in a microwave oven, and compare the material characteristics of those with similar materials sintered in a conventional furnace. © 2018 Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
