    Abstract

    A simple indentation method is used for measuring the interfacial bonding strength of a single continuous fiber reinforced metal matrix composite (MMC) to obtain its optimal manufacturing process in a vacuum-assisted squeeze casting. The effects of several manufacturing parameters on the interfacial bonding strength are investigated, including their interrelationships. By applying the optimal manufacturing process for the single fiber reinforced MMC to the bundled fiber reinforced MMC manufacturing process, it is shown that the measurement of bonding strength at the interface by a simple indentation method can be used to obtain the optimal manufacturing process of metal matrix composite in a vacuum-assisted squeeze casting
