摘要：Alumina-based composite ceramic tool materials reinforced with carbide particles were fabricated by the hot-pressing technology. Choice Of metallic phase added into the present composite ceramic was based on the distribution of residual stress in the composite. The effects of metallic phase on microstructure and mechanical properties of composites were investigated. The metallic phase could dramatically improve room temperature mechanical properties by refining microstructure, filling pores and enhancing interfacial bonding strength. However, it also led to sharp strength degradation at high temperature because the metallic phase was easier to be oxidized and get soft at high temperature in am The effects of metallic phase on strengthening and toughening were discussed. The improved fracture toughness of composite with metallic phase was attributed to the lower residual tensile stress in the matrix and the interaction of more effective energy consuming mechanisms, such as crack bridged by particle, crack deflection and intragranular grain failure.
