Abstract : This patent provides an improvement in the technique of producing composite material by electro-deposition whereby a greater volume percent of reinforcing particles can be added to the composite material than has been possible before by this technique. It is another object of this invention to produce composite material by electrodeposition under the influence of a centrifugal force field so as to increase the volume percent of the reinforcing particles in the material. This invention produces by electro-deposition an aluminum oxide whisker-nickel composite in which the volume percent of aluminum oxide whiskers is greater than 15 percent.
