Development of Ni-Nb-Ta Metallic Glass Particle Reinforced Al Based Matrix Composites
Metallic glass particle reinforced Al-6.5Si-0.25Mg (wt%) alloy matrix composites have been fabricated using infiltration casting process. The Al-Si-Mg alloy melt infiltrates into the porous Ni-Nb-Ta metallic glass pre-form by applying the pressure. The Ni60Nb20Ta20 metallic glass particles are homogeneously distributed in the matrix. The composite exhibits higher yield strength than the monolithic Al-6.5Si-0.25Mg (wt%) alloy.
