The Influence Of Bonding Mode and Wire Setting On The Stresses Of Metal Matrix Composite Reinforced with Continuous wire

Abstract

This paper deals with the influence of bonding mode and the setting of thereinforcement between matrix and reinforcement for metal matrix composite on theinduced stresse and also on the value of the reinforcing A charpy specimen withnotch was used as a specimen test for comparison . Analytical model was builtvia ANSYS 8.1 software with a nonlinear solution based on the elastic –plasticbehavior for both phases (matrix and reinforcement).Five miscellaneous cases forbonding mode and the setting of the reinforcement (wire with 1 mm diameter)were used .The results exhibit the eloquent perfect bonding on the value ofreinforcing and also the setting (semi-circle) of the reinforcement in the matrixwhich gave the best reinforcing.
