Processing, structure and properties of Al-matrix composites

Abstract:

Three classes of Al-matrix composite were manufactured to combine dissimilar metals and incorporate structural hierarchy, in an attempt to develop unusual combinations of mechanical properties.

The first class combined a brittle, nano-quasicrystalline forming Al-3Fe-2Cr-2Ti phase with a ductile Al-4Cu phase into a layered structure using low pressure plasma spraying (LPPS). By using a substrate with multi-scale topological features, an ultra-thick (>2mm) deposit was successfully ...
