Summary

In the present work pure aluminum foils with thickness of 92 µm and pure titanium foils as a reinforcing material having three kinds of thickness namely volume fraction were alternately multilayered and then pressed under high pressure at room temperature to fabricate aluminum matrix Al/Ti composites by a simple method. The formation process of Al/Ti composites was examined by optical and scanning electron microscopy and by nominal compressive stress-displacement curves. Tensile and bending properties of the composites were investigated. Tensile strength of the composites was compared with the value estimated from the rule of mixture on the flake-reinforced composite.
