Abstract: Ceramic reinforced metals, despite superior properties such as specific stiffness, are often considered as too brittle for structural applications. We show that despite a high ceramic particle content (60 vol.%), aluminium matrix composites can be made to exhibit a fracture toughness matching that of unreinforced aluminium alloys, provided critical microstructural parameters are controlled. We here use an unconventional Al-Ag matrix to simultaneously increase the strength and the toughness of this class of composite.
