Low Pressure Casting Process of FeCrSi/A366.0 Alloy Composites and Their Characterization


Article Preview

Low pressure casting process was considered for fabrication of FeCrSi metal fiber reinforced A366.0 aluminum composites. FeCrSi/A366.0 alloy composite was fabricated by applied pressure 0.8MPa. The microstructure features, tensile strength and fatigue life of composites were investigated from room temperature to high temperature. It was confirmed that the FeCrSi metal fiber did indeed have a strengthening effect on the composite, lending it good mechanical properties and a good fatigue life at high temperatures.
