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 ...
High strain-rate compression testing of a short-fiber reinforced aluminum composite
Compression behavior of 15–26 Vf% Saffil™ short-fiber reinforced Al-1.17wt.%Cu alloy metal matrix composites has been determined over a strain-rate range of approximately 10−4 to 2×103 s−1. The strain-rate sensitivity of ...
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 ...
