High strain rate deformation behavior of a continuous fiber reinforced aluminum metal matrix composite
An aluminum metal matrix composite reinforced with continuous unidirectional α-Al2O3 fibers has been compression tested at quasi-static and dynamic strain rates. In the transverse direction, the composite showed increased ...
High strain rate properties of an SiCw/2124-T6 aluminum composite at elevated temperatures
Metal matrix composites, (MMC’s) provide several important advantages over unreinforced metals and alloys. Among these, higher moduli and yield stresses and enhanced thermo-mechanical properties are normally considered ...
