Paper Title:
Discontinuously Reinforced Aluminum Composite and Its Application in Brake Discs
  Abstract

Discontinuously reinforced aluminum (DRA) composites are attractive for a large range of engineering applications because of its excellent wear-resistance, high thermal conductivity and light weight etc. In this paper, DRA composites were designed and fabricated especially for automotive application, and their properties were measured. Brake discs of DRA composites were manufactured and their braking performances were investigated, including brake velocity, brake pressure, brake torque, brake deceleration, brake time and surface temperature etc. The test results show DRA composites exhibit an excellent braking performance.
