Abstract : Attempts to secure iron-alumina single crystal fiber composites having high fiber loading and exhibiting high strength reinforcement of the iron by inclusion of additives to the system prior to and during the fusion formation of the composite have not been successful. Additives have been presented as claddings on the fiber, as inclusions in the metal portion, and as special atmospheres during the melting of the metal phase. The inherent difficulties associated with high fiber loadings as opposed to low fiber loadings are described as being associated with both the chemical and physical aspects of composite formation.
