Study of the Viability to Obtain Quasicrystal in the Composition AlCuFe Using High-Energy Milling, Followed by Pressing and Sintering
This work was observed the phase formations of the mixture Al-Cu-Fe processed vial mechanical alloying, powders pressing at room temperature and subsequent heat treatment. The mixture of powders was made on the nominal composition Al65Cu20Fe15. A mill of high energy of the horizontal atrittor type was used to process the powders mixtures, in fixed time of two hours of milling. After milling, the powders were pressing in a die closed, with a diameter of about 28mm. The samples were observed by optical microscopy and analyzed X-ray diffractometry. The results obtained in this study provide a basis for setting parameters may be used as a basis for future research and possible applications.
