The Reinforcement Destruction Simulation of an Al-Zn Carbon Fibers Composite
The destruction of the Carbon fibers reinforcement occurs during an infiltration with metallic matrix, under well-defined technological circumstances. The Al carbide resulted plays an important role in transferring the efforts trough the interface as long as it doesn’t significantly reduce the diameter of the carbon fibers. The interface reaction can be controlled by adding K2ZnF6 and Zn, thus improving the wetting of the reinforcement and reducing the Al reactivity against carbon. This article deals with a simulation using specific technological parameters in order to achieve an evolution of the Al carbide thickness of the layer, when Zn percentages of the Al matrix change.
