Abstract:

In this research program, the spray atomization and deposition technique was both experimentally and numerically studied to process ceramic particulate reinforced including functionally graded reinforcement distributions A1 alloy metal matrix composites MMCs as armor materials and Ta alloys for Army applications such as shaped charged liners and explosively formed projectiles. In this final progress report, the aforementioned experimental and numerical results are described and discussed in five individual sections, which are described as follows investigation of thermal residual stresses in layered SiCA1 composite using the finite element method and X-ray diffraction spray forming and co-injection of particle reinforced TiA1TiB2 composites spray atomization and deposition of tantalum alloys low pressure spray forming modeling of porosity during spray forming and a summary on the investigation on creep behavior of Al alloys and SiCA1 composites.
