Abstract

The fracture toughness of laminated metal composites consisting of alternating layers of a metal matrix composite (Al6090/SiC/25p) and a monolithic aluminum alloy (Al5182) has been studied as a function of the volume fraction of the component materials. Finite element simulations of the fracture toughness tests have been used to study the mechanisms of crack growth and extrinsic toughening. The mechanisms responsible for toughening in laminated metal composites are described.
