These composites were developed using microwave-assisted powder metallurgy route followed by extrusion. The effects of addition of particulates on the physical, microstructural, and mechanical properties of the nanocomposites were investigated. Mechanical properties (microhardness, 0.2% YS, and UTS) for both composite systems increase with the presence of particulates. The best tensile strength was realized for composite solders reinforced with 1.5 vol.% alumina and 0.7 vol.% tin oxide particulates, which far exceeds the strength of eutectic Sn-Pb solder. The morphology of pores was observed to be one of the most dominating factors affecting the strength of materials. © ASM International.||Source Title:||Journal of Materials Engineering and Performance||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/61655||ISSN:||10599495||DOI:||10.1007/s11665-009-9481-z|
