Investigation of Quasicrystal-Reinforced Aluminium Metal Matrix Composite by Hot Extrusion
The use of quasicrystalline alloys as reinforcement material is due to the fact that they posses high hardness and low coefficient of friction. For this purpose was used compaction/extrusion equipment with which it was possible to observe a tendency toward increase in the mechanical strength from 72MPa (0% reinforcement) to 129Mpa (6% reinforcement).
