Abstract
Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) with an aluminium-silicon based LM-13 alloy and short-staple Saffil (δ-alumina) fibres with volume fractions of 0.10, 0.15, 0.20, 0.25 and 0.30 have been produced using a pressure liquid infiltration process. The standard T6 heat treatment procedure was applied to both the unreinforced matrix alloy and the composites, and the effect of the fibres on the age-hardening characteristics of the composites has been investigated by means of hardness measurements.
