Material Research Summary

Abstract

This article reviews some aspects of plastic deformation of Al/SiC composites with an emphasis on strengthening mechanisms, the role of coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), the role of particle-matrix interfaces (PMI), and the fracture process. There is a tremendous potential for structural applications of SiC/Al composites. However, a complete understanding of the mechanisms of strengthening and fracture have not yet been obtained. Therefore, continued detailed fundamental investigations are required.
