Tensile Deformation and Fracture in a Bulk Nanostructured Al-5083/SiCp Composite at Elevated Temperatures
An ultrafine-grained Al-5083 alloy reinforced with 5 vol.% nano-sized β-SiC particles was fabricated with a powder cryomilling and consolidation technique. Tensile tests were conducted at temperatures from 298 to 773 K for this composite. The mechanisms for deformation and fracture of this nanostructured composite at various temperatures are discussed.
