Effect of alumina particle additions on the aging kinetics of 2014-aluminum matrix composites
Harper, Christopher Paul
MetadataShow full item record
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) was conducted on 2014 aluminum, 2014 aluminum reinforced with 10 and 15 percent by volume of alumina particles, 2024 aluminum, and a A1/4%Cu alloy. Electrical resistivity and matrix micro-hardness measurements were conducted on the 2014 aluminum alloy and the metal matrix composites (MMC) during isothermal aging. Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and DSC were used to identify the metastable phases formed in the 2014 aluminum alloy. The effect of alumina particle addition on the precipitation, growth and thermal stability of the metastability phases in the 2014 aluminum alloy and MMC were studied. Results were used to characterize the effect of the alumina reinforcement on the aging kinetics of the 2014 aluminum alloy matrix
