Material Property Modification of Continuous Fibre-reinforced Aluminium Matrices Produced by Semi-solid Forming Strategies

Mathias Liewald, Kim Rouven Riedmüller


Targeting lightweight concepts, research activities in the fields of automotive engineering, aerospace engineering as well as civil engineering are focusing on the development of high-strength and high-rigidity composite materials. Such composites are to be used where properties of conventional materials are not able to withstand the constantly increasing demands of industrial applications. In this context, the Institute for Metal Forming Technology/Stuttgart is concerned with the development of new processes for the manufacturing of metal matrix composites utilizing semi-solid forming strategies. Thereby, the objective target is the infiltration of continuous reinforcing components like carbon or glass fibres by aluminium matrix materials.
