Paper Title:
Fabrication and Properties of Al/Al-Cu Functionally Graded Material
  Abstract

Five-layered Al/Al-Cu functionally graded material (FGM) was fabricated by powder metallurgy technology. The microstructure and composition of the prepared specimen were studied. Vickers hardness, flexural strength and fracture surface morphology were also measured. The results showed that Al/Al-Cu graded material with dense structure and compositional continuous change was obtained by solution-precipitation method. The graded materials presented a compositional continuous change along the graded direction because of the diffusion effect, and the Vickers hardness was liner proportional to the distribution of Cu content. Compared with pure sintered Al, remarkable improvement on hardness and fracture strength was achieved due to the CuAl2 phase dispersively distributed in the matrix. With the increase of Cu content, the fracture mode changed from tough fracture to the tendency of brittle fracture.
