Interconnectivity between eutectic silicon and short fibers in an AlSi12CuNiMg/Al2O3/15s composite increases with long-term creep exposure time due to diffusion. It is also observed that the stationary creep rate decreases significantly compared to the initial stationary creep rate. Interconnectivity between rigid phases is analyzed and three-dimensional statistical functions are applied to deduce the representative volume elements of the composite in different conditions. Unit cell geometrical models are generated to simulate the stationary creep behavior using the finite element method.
