Development of Aluminium Alloys and Metal Matrix Composites by Powder Metallurgy
Consolidation of aluminium alloys by sintering present a main problem: the oxide layer that cover aluminium particles. Some alternatives are studied in this work as solution to the oxide layer problem during the sintering of series 2xxx aluminium alloys. One of these solutions is related to the addition of tin traces, and the other is the addition of a second alloy. Moreover, aluminium metal matrix composites are characterized by excellent properties as combination of properties which comes from the matrix and from the reinforcement. In the first part of this work is analyzed the influence of trace additions, and the last part of this study is focused to the analysis of one aluminium matrix composite as the influence of several quantities of reinforcement.
