Processing of Aluminum Alloys Containing Displacement Reaction Products
MetadataShow full item record
Reacted powders were densified by uniaxial compaction and extrusion. Metallographic analysis of the reacted specimens confirmed the findings of the thermal analysis. Increased mechanical alloying inhibited the chemical reactions. Densified specimens from longer-milled mechanically alloyed specimens showed finer, more uniformly dispersed reaction products. These samples also showed increased mechanical properties as a result of their finer microstructure. Current particle strengthening models were used to accurately predict room temperature properties. Because of the fine microstructures produced, it may be possible to use similar techniques to yield new high-temperature aluminum alloys.
