Ambient Processing for In-Situ Selective Reinforcement (ISSR) of Near Net Shape Structures

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Ambient Processing for In-Situ Selective Reinforcement (ISSR) of Near Net Shape Structures
Use AMPB’s laboratory-scale rolling mill to simulate the dynamic conditions associated with metallic structure forming and fabrication methods. Use aerospace aluminum alloys and commercially-available aluminum MMC for reinforcement. Assess aluminum flow behavior and the strain fields within the MMC and their effects on the reinforcing fibers. Flow aluminum plate material into grooved die with preplaced MMC to form and reinforce stiffeners at selected processing temperatures. Evaluate bond microstructures and mechanical properties More »
