Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-228
Budget: 12/05/03 - 12/05/05

Shape memory alloy (SMA) fiber reinforced aluminum composites, SMA-MMC offer excellent properties, particularly, fracture toughness and damage tolerance which are due to induced compressive residual stresses. In Phase I, we have demonstrated through casting and warm rolling that viable SMA-MMC can be dveloped with desirable mechanical propertie...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-228
Budget: 03/18/02 - 09/18/02

The SMA reinforced aluminum composites show self-strengthening by compressive stresses in Al matrix due to shape memory shrinkages of the embedded TiNi fibers (Furuya, 1996). The increases in tensile properties such as yield stress as well as fatigue resistance (crack growth retardation) at higher temperature were experimentally confirmed by Fu...
