Abstract:

A study was conducted to develop an understanding of the interaction of stronger and more ductile phases in determining the mechanical behavior and fracture of metallic composites. It was directed to composites in which the strong phase constituted the major volume fracture. The following aspects were particularly emphasized 1 the relationship of the properties of individual phases to their behavior in a composite 2 the effect of the shape, size and volume fraction, distribution, and spacing of the phases upon the properties and 3 the thermodynamic properties, i.e., phase relationships solubilities, and interfacial tensions of the composites.
