Summary

The properties of Ti MMCs (titanium metal matrix composites) have been investigated in detail by a number of researchers, and it has been found that catastrophic failure of selectively reinforced MMCs can be strongly influenced by the cladding layers. A hot isostatic press (HIP) cycle is used to manufacture these MMCs as this bonds the fibres to the matrix, and the cladding layers to the composite section, thus completely consolidating the material. It is necessary, therefore, to obtain an understanding of the effects of the HIP cycle on the microstructure of cladding alloys, so that existing defect tolerant approaches can be applied.
