Mechanical Properties of Low Young's Modulus Amorphous Carbon Reinforced Aluminum Composites
The XN-05C/2017, XN-05C/MESO-10 and BGC152/MESO-10 aluminum composites reinforced by low young’s modulus amorphous carbon fiber and particle, respectively, were fabricated by a PM route followed by hot extrusion and rolling in this study. The mechanical properties of the prepared composites were investigated subsequently. The XN-05C/2017 and XN-05C/MESO-10 were found to exhibit low elastic modulus of 50~60GPa within the fiber volume fraction of 0.10~0.15, while the BGC152/MESO-10 shows a data of 50GPa with a particle volume fraction of 0.10. The tensile strength of XN-05C/MESO-10 was evaluated to be 400~600MPa in the case of Vf=0.10~0.15, and become to decease with increasing fiber volume fraction. Damping application would be a potential consideration for the amorphous carbon fiber reinforced aluminum composites.
