TL;DR: In this article, a surface modifying technique, friction stir processing (FSP), has been developed for fabrication of surface composite, and the surface composites have excellent bonding with the aluminum alloy substrate.

Abstract: A novel surface modifying technique, friction stir processing (FSP), has been developed for fabrication of surface composite. Al–SiC surface composites with different volume fractions of particles were successfully fabricated. The thickness of the surface composite layer ranged from 50 to 200 μm. The SiC particles were uniformly distributed in the aluminum matrix. The surface composites have excellent bonding with the aluminum alloy substrate. The microhardness of the surface composite reinforced with 27vol.%SiC of 0.7 μm average particle size was ∼173 HV, almost double of the 5083Al alloy substrate (85 HV). The solid-state processing and very fine microstructure that results are also desirable for high performance surface composites.

TL;DR: In this article, the debonding behaviour at the interface is represented in terms of a cohesive zone model that describes decohesion by normal separation and tangential separation, and the effect of friction during pullout is included in the model.

Abstract: For a whisker-reinforced metal matrix composite, failure by decohesion of the fibre-matrix interface is analysed. The unit-cell model applied for the numerical analyses represents a periodic array of aligned fibres, where neighbouring fibres are somewhat shifted relative to one another. The debonding behaviour at the interface is represented in terms of a cohesive zone model that describes decohesion by normal separation as well as decohesion by tangential separation. The predicted failure initiates by void formation near the sharp edges at the fibre ends, and subsequently fibre pull-out is described. The effect of friction during pull-out is included in the model.
