Abstract: This paper reports some results obtained in an experimental study of the mechanical properties of as-cast and wrought (hot extruded) hiduminium/corundum particulate composites. The results show that as the corundum content is increased, the yield strength, ultimate tensile strength (UTS) and compressive strength increase considerably, whereas the ductility and the fracture toughness drop significantly. It was discovered that only a small amount of corundum is sufficient to cause a fairly large change in the mechanical properties. Moreover, if other factors are kept constant, hot extrusion improves the yield strength, UTS, compressive strength, and even the ductility, whereas the fracture toughness is decreased. © 1995.
