Abstract

In this article, abridged from a report published in Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A, Vol. 29A, Nov. 1998, a publication of ASM International and The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society, the effect of SiC volume fraction and particle size on the fatigue resistance of 2080 Al is discussed. It was found that increasing volume fraction and decreasing particle size resulted in an increase in fatigue resistance. Several mechanisms responsible for this behavior are also described.
