Project Description and Objectives
The ductile/brittle laminate composites has drawn widespread attention for its unique structure which is inspired by the mollusk shell material. Up to now, the study on ductile/brittle laminate composites has mostly focused on metallic/intermetallic and metallic/ceramic systems. However the metallic/ceramic laminated composites are difficult to fabricate due to the great differences in physical properties between metal and ceramic which result in the weak bonding of the interfaces. The intermetallic compounds have a negative effect on interfaces also. In this study, a novel metallic/high entropy alloys is proposed and the object of this study is the fabrication and characterization of a Al/HEAs laminated composite.
Interested students should have a basic knowledge of composite.
Interested students should be familiar with SEM and EBSD.
