Pressure-Infiltration Processing Of Reinforced Aluminum

Pressure infiltration of liquid metal is one of the most important processing routes for the production of aluminum-matrix composites having a self-supporting reinforcement phase. This article briefly examines the physical phenomena governing infiltration processes, to present practical guidelines derived from their analysis for optimization of the process and the materials produced. Engineering aspects that are pertinent to infiltration techniques, including preform preparation, process configurations, flow control, and innovative processes, are summarized.
