Abstract: Current and future challenges of aerospace and automotive application have led to design and development of novel materials, which reduce weight combined with improved strength. In recent years, aluminum (Al) composites reinforced by carbon nanotube (CNT) have attracted increasing attention, due to the extraordinary high strength and stiffness of CNTs. In the development of Al-CNT composites, several issues are of significance: (i) successful fabrication process of Al-CNT composites with low processing cost coupled with good mechanical properties; (ii) understanding their structural evolution during the processing; (iii) identifying their mechanical properties using different means. This project aims to synthesize Al-CNT composites coupled with improved strength, reliability and reproducibility in processing and to investigate their mechanical properties.
