Abstract : Two phase composites, whose microstructure consists of steel ball bearings uniformly dispersed in Ag matrix, were prepared by electroplating. Sintering of the composite raft after electroplating removed remaining voids and removed boundaries between particles by grain growth and diffusion. This method is capable of producingA TWO PHASE COMPOSITE WITH CAREFUL CONTROL OF PARTICLE SIZE AND INTERPARTICLE SPACING, UNOBTAINABLE BY PREVIOUS METHODS. (Author)
