Driven by the increasing requirements from aircraft producers, aluminium alloy matrix composites with carbon fiber reinforcement have been largely used in the modern industry. The method of traditional preparation of carbon fiber reinforced aluminum matrix composites is not only high cost and complex to produce but also difficult to apply in the civilian. The present paper focuses on exploratory study on the preparation of carbon-fiber- reinforced aluminum composites, the intensifying material is continuous long carbon fiber. In order to avoid any interfacial reactions in the carbon fiber reinforced composites, the carbon fibers were coated with copper. We made The tensile samples were made by using the mould, the tensile properties determined, the strengthening mechanism studied, and the carbon fiber in the matrix observed with the microscope.
