Abstract:A new method for determining two key parameters (threshold pressure and permeability) for fabricating metal matrix composites was proposed based on the equation-solving method. An infiltration experimental device was devised to measure the infiltration behavior precisely with controllable infiltration velocity. Two experiments with alloy Pb-Sn infiltrating into Al2O3 preform were conducted independently under two different pressures so as to get two different infiltration curves. Two sets of coefficients which are functions of threshold pressure and permeability can be obtained through curve fitting method. By solving the two-variable equation set, two unknown variables were determined. It is shown that the determined threshold pressure and permeability are very close to the calculated ones and are also verified by another independent infiltration experiment. The proposed method is also feasible to determine the key infiltration parameters for other metal matrix composite systems.
