Growth Kinetics of Magnesio-Aluminate Spinel in Al/Mg Lamellar Composite Interface
The synthesis of Mg-Al2O3 double layered interface is introduced via the application of hot isostatic pressing, HIPing, in Al-Mg foils. Polycrystalline spinel layers are grown experimentally at the interfacial contacts between Al-Mg foils. The growth behavior of the spinel layers along with the kinetic parameters characterizing interface motion and long-range diffusion is established. Low melting depressant (LMD), Zn, and alloying element segregation tends to form micro laminated and/or Nano structure interphase in a lamellar composite solid state processing. Nano composite ceramic interphase materials offer interesting mechanical properties not achievable in other materials, such as superplastic flow and metal-like machinability. Microstructural characterization, mechanical characterization is also established via optical microscopy scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and tensile testing. Chemical and mechanical bonding via inter diffusion processing with alloy segregation are dominant for interphase kinetics. Mechanical characterization with interfacial shear strength is also introduced. HIPing processing is successfully applied on 6082 Al-alloy and AZ31 magnesium alloy for either particulate or micro-laminated interfacial composite processing. The interphase kinetic established through localized micro plasticity, metal flow, alloy segregation and delocalized Al oxide and Mg oxide. The kinetic of interface/interphase induce new nontraditional crack mitigation a long with new bridging and toughening mechanisms.
