Abstract : Further work towards the objective of producing ductile Be composites consisting of Be particles in a ductile matrix is described. Cylindrical compacts, 3/4 in. in diameter, are in preparation to provide information on the effects of variations in the processing procedure. Candidate Al-base and Ag-base matrix alloys were prepared for evaluation of their tensile properties in the age-hardened condition. A vacuum chamber is under construction so that liquid phase sintering in vacuo may be accomplished. (Author)
