Abstract:

The report gives the development of new structural composite materials having high strength-to-weight ratios at elevated temperatures. The current effort was directed towards the use of nickel and nickel alloys as the matrix to be reinforced by high strength Al2O3 single crystal whiskers. The major emphasis during this contract 22 Nov. 1965 - 22 Nov. 1966 was placed on evaluating factors important to two potential processes for making high strength composites namely, liquid metal infiltration and high temperature pressure-bonding of electro-formed whisker bundles. In support of these studies, some effort was devoted to whisker growth, whisker evaluation, and to whisker handling studies. Author
