Bending Properties of AA7055 Aluminum Alloy Reinforced with In Situ TiB2 Particles
In-situ TiB2 particles reinforced AA7055 composites were fabricated through mixed-salts route and their bending properties were studied. The composites reinforced with 5 wt % and 10 wt% TiB2 exhibit higher bending strength than the unreinforced matrix alloy. The improvement in bending strength may be attributed to dislocation strengthening, Orowan strengthening, and grain strengthening. The good bonding between the reinforcements and the matrix also plays an important role.
