This research work investigates the low-cycle fatigue behavior of stainless steel/Mg-PSZ composite materials which have been produced using spark plasma sintering (SPS). The influence of the ceramic reinforcement on the cyclic deformation behavior and fatigue life times is discussed. The resulting deformation microstructures are studied using scanning electron microscopy analyses and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) measurements to localize the occurring phase transformations in the metal matrix composite.
