Abstract
Experimental observations of the behaviour of aluminium based composites are compared with finite element micromechanical model predictions. The composites are reinforced with whiskers of SiC and the following phenomena are discussed : (i) Dislocation configurations and strain distribution, (ii) Flow stress in tension at room temperature, (iii) Crystallographic texture after cold-rolling and recrystallization.
