Abstract
THE PROPOSED STUDY WILL RESEARCH AND DEVELOP A NOVEL AND COST-EFFECTIVE METHOD USING HIGH-ENERGY ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE FOR FABRICATION OF METAL-MATRIX SURFACE COMPOSITES, INCLUDING MULTI-PLY LAMINATES, RAPID SOLIDIFIED COATINGS, CERAMIC PHASE DISPERSION AND AMORPHOUS PHASES. IN PHASE I, PROCESS PARAMETERS WILL BE EXPLORED AND MATERIAL INTERACTIONS STUDIED, LEADING TO THE EVALUATION OF FIVE GENERIC PROCESSING CAPABILITIES INVOLVING BONDING, SURFACE ALLOYING, SURFACE FINISHING, COATING DENSIFICATION, AND DIRECT FABRICATION OF FIBER REINFORCED LAMINATES. AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROCESS PARAMETERS AND MATERIALS BEHAVIOR WILL ESTABLISH THE BASIS FOR PHASE II, WHICH WILL UNDERTAKE ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT OF BASIC TYPES OF PROCESSES FOR COMMERCIALIZATION OF THE SURFACE FABRICATION PROCESS.
