Abstract : The mechanical behavior of aluminum-stainless steel composites (Vf = 6.5% and 19.6%) was studied with particular reference to the role and stability of the interface. In particular, ambient temperature tensile yielding, flow, and fracture were correlated with the associated interface microstructures, matrix substructure, and fracture morphology in the as-pressed condition and following elevated-temperature exposure at 550C or 625C for 24 hours.
