Cast aluminum alloys and discontinuously reinforced aluminums (DRAs) are widely used in automotive, aerospace, nuclear and other engineering systems due to their advantageous strength-to-density ratio. Their microstructure is characterized by a dispersion of hard and brittle heterogeneities in a softer aluminum matrix. These microstructural heterogeneities increase the strength of the alloys, but also affect their failure properties like fracture toughness and ductility in an adverse manner… CONTINUE READING
