Abstract:

The report discusses progress made on optimizing the mechanical properties of aluminum-graphite composites consolidated by liquid-phase hot pressing. Various matrix alloys, fabrication parameters, fiber fractions, and lay-up geometries are considered. The properties investigated include tensile, compressive, and flexture strength modulus and fatigue.
