Abstract : The development of high strength, high modulus A1B2 flake reinforced composites with properties isotropic in the plane of the flakes, was continued. Parameters affecting yields and dimensions of flakes were investigated. The use of non-aqueous solvent in flake elutriation was explored. Binary A1B composites were prepared and tested to broaden the information on their mechanical behavior. A wide range of ternary composites containing flakes between plies of graphite fibers were investigated. (Author)
