Processing and Properties of Al Based Amorphous/Crystalline Alloy Composites


Article Preview

Three types of composite materials, Al-10Ni-6Ce (at%)/pure Al (Vf=0.3), Al-10Ni- 6Ce/Al-3.6Mn (Vf=0.3) and Al-10Ni-6Ce/Al-5.5Mg (Vf=0.3), and monolithic Al-10Ni-6Ce alloy were successfully fabricated to a fully dense rod-shaped bulk form having a diameter of about 10mm by adopting a powder forging or extrusion process using amorphous Al-Ni-Ce powder together with crystalline pure Al, Al-Mn and Al-Mg powders. The monolithic Al-Ni-Ce specimen forged at 648K showed a very high compressive strength of 1.3GPa without exhibiting any compressive plastic strain. All of the composite specimens forged at 648K gained a compressive plastic strain with the considerable sacrifice of strength. In contrast, Al-Ni-Ce/Al-Mg composite specimen extruded at 648K showed a noticeably high compressive strength of 1.2GPa with the compressive plastic strain of 0.5%. The extruded Al-Ni-Ce/Al-Mn composite specimen also exhibited a considerably high compressive strength (1.1GPa) accompanied with plastic strain (0.2%).
