Abstract : A composite consisting of an aluminum alloy matrix and a graphite fiber reinforcement was developed with strengths exceeding the 'rule of mixture' strength of 101 ksi. The composite is not degraded by temperature to 550C or by thermal cycling from -193 to +500C. The importance of various processing techniques to the successful development of this composite and the effects of certain process variables on properties are discussed. (Author)
