Quasi-static and dynamic compression behaviour of an FPTM alumina-reinforced aluminium metal matrix composite
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1998)
An aluminium metal matrix composite reinforced with continuous unidirectional α-alumina fibres has been compression tested at quasi-static and dynamic strain rates. In the transverse direction, the composite showed increasing ...
Dynamic properties of metal matrix composites: a comparative study
Three distinctly different metal matrix composites have been tested at strain rates from quasi-static to ≈3000 s−1. It was found that the high strain rate response of each composite was determined primarily by (a) the ...
