Summary

A successful combination of parameters of Nd:YAG laser beam, powder stream and the temperature of Al substrate have been found to form reinforced MMC layer in a single injected laser track, containing 25-30 % volume fraction of SiC particles.

Optical microscopy, SEM, TEM, EDS and X-ray diffraction techniques were used to identify morphology and crystallography of phases formed during the process. In-situ tensile observations on V-notched samples in a scanning electron microscope were performed to identify failure initiation and crack propagation mechanisms.
