Abstract:

The major efforts have been in the following directions Improving existing and investigating new methods of forming and working composites of aluminum and aluminum coated glass fibers Determining a complete set of physical data on a standard glass-reinforced aluminum composite in order to indicate the general characteristics of glass-reinforced metals as a class of materials Developing a method of forming composites of aluminum and bare glass fibers and evaluating the physical properties of these composites Produc tion and testing of glass-reinforced aluminum tubular shapes Developing a theory on the inter action of metals and glass fibers and Developing a glass-reinforced meving utility at tem peratures about 1000 F.
