Production and Examination of Double Composites


Article Preview

Nowadays, metal matrix composites have many new areas of application owing to their excellent properties - for example their great tensile strength and high Young’s modulus with its relatively low weight. The aim of this work is to an examination of ceramic fibre-reinforced aluminium matrix composite wires made via continuous process. Furthermore, the research will outline the double composite products that are composite wire-reinforced metal matrix composites. Double composites are examined by tensile tests, bending tests and pressing tests. A lot of research has been done on the thermal aging of composite wires and on measuring the impact energy of thermal-aged specimens. The mechanical test shows us that structures reinforced with the composite wires have a notably higher load-carrying capacity than does a structure reinforced directly with fibres or a structure without any reinforcement.
