Abstract

a.n alytical investigation was performed on an - 120 aluminum wire which failed under stress test. ~.canning electron microscopy (SEM) examination ''nd the energy depressive spectrometer (EDS) nalysis were the major analytical methods of 1m.vestigation used. The failure mode of the alloy was found to be that of brittle failure interspersed · with ductile failure. The brittle failure results from he second phase particles contained within the luminium matrix which rendered the structure in .
