Summary

The tetragonal intermetallic compound Al3Ti has been transformed to a cubic structure by the addition of 9 a% Cr. This cubic alloy has been utilized as a matrix for several composites reinforced with Al2O3, Mo-TZM alloy, Nb or W fibers. All composites were consolidated by powder metallurgical techniques. The microstructure and preliminary mechanical properties of these composites is described.
