Paper Title:
Effect of Temperature on Strain Softening Behavior of Composites with Small Misaligned Whiskers
  Abstract

The effect of temperature on strain softening behavior of composites with small misaligned whiskers is investigated. The results show that the temperature affects the matrix and whisker mechanical behavior and corresponding composite deformation behavior. With increasing temperature, the whisker rotation angle increases, but their breakage decreases. Meanwhile elevating temperature not only reduces the matrix flow stress and work hardening rate, but also decreases load transfer from the matrix to the whiskers and stress induced by the whisker rotation and breakage.It is found that during hot compression, strain softening behavior of composites decreases as temperature increases.
