    Abstract

    This paper describes an analytical modeling effort designed to study the stress-strain behavior of silicon carbide whisker reinforced aluminum. The objective of the study was to develop an approximate method for predicting the stress-strain response of whisker reinforced metals as a function of constituent properties, whisker geometry, volume fraction, and extrusion ratio. The study utilized experimental results (described in a companion paper) for qualitative understanding of the material behavior and quantitative data correlations with the model.
