Creep behavior of interfaces in fiber reinforced metal-matrix composites
MetadataShow full item record
The elevated temperature deformation behavior of interfaces in model single fiber composites was isolated and studied using a fiber push-down approach, whereby the interface is loaded in shear. Two fiber-matrix systems, one with no mutual solubility (quartz-lead) and the other with limited mutual solubility (nickel-lead), were investigated. In both systems, the matrix and fiber underwent sliding relative to each other, with the interface acting as a high diffusivity path. The mechanism of sliding was inferred to be interface-diffusion-controlled diffusional creep with a threshold stress (Bingham flow). The behavior was modeled analytically using a continuum approach, and an expression for the constitutive creep behavior of the interface was derived. The model provided a physical basis for the observed threshold behavior, which was found to be directly related to the normal (radial) residual stress acting on the fiber-matrix interface. The results are deemed to be significant because (1) in some instances, interfacial sliding may be instrumental in determining the overall creep/thermal cycling response of a composite; and (2) they offer an alternative rationalization of threshold behavior during diffusional flow (besides interface reaction control) and may be useful in understanding creep in multi-phase systems with internal stresses.
