Abstract:

This report describes the work accomplished during the first two months of a program aimed at strengthening chromium-ceramic composites by alloying. The initial phases of this program were directed toward better definition of the ductility of currently produced chroniluin-magnesia composites and improvements therein, if required. The notch tensile properties of Cbrome-3O were determined at several stress concentration levels. Extrusions representing variations in the ceramic addition and in processing were prepared for investigating potential methods of improving ductility and lowering the impact transition temperature.
