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 ...
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 ...
High strain rate behavior of a SiC particulate reinforced Al2O3 ceramic matrix composite
The high strain rate deformation behavior of composite materials is important for several reasons. First, knowledge of the mechanical properties of composites at high strain rates is needed for designing with these materials ...
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 ...
