Abstract: Quality control during fabrication and failure monitoring during service have gained importance in the field of metal matrix composites because of their growing uses, especially for structural applications. This review aims to provide a survey of quality control and nondestructive testing relevant to metal matrix composites. The first part presents the determination of the reinforcement parameters which play a very important role in controlling the performance of metal matrix composites. The second part describes the main relevant nondestructive techniques used to identify the defects produced during fabrication or in service. It also shows that the validation of nondestructive techniques and the relationship between their results and component performance should be particularly emphasized in future research work on metal matrix composites.
