|Abstract:||Cold die-forgings of Al-based metal matrix composites reinforced with 10% and 15% by vol of SiC participates have been successfully produced under a high hydrostatic pressure. Due to the influence of the high hydrostatic pressure, the brittle composites have shown a large plastic deformation in a die at an ambient temperature. A gear shaped component with a complex geometry has been produced. Microstructural study has revealed a reduction in the grain size, a decrease in defects, and the fracturing of the secondary phase and SiC particulates. Because of a cold plastic deformation, a large crystal distortion occurred resulting in the increase in the dislocation density that enhanced mechanical properties. The minimum isostatic pressure to prevent fracturing during cold die-forging was found to be 650 MPa. Copyright © 1996 Elsevier Science Ltd.|
