Aluminum matrix nanocomposites with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were fabricated by powder metallurgy process, and their mechanical responses were evaluated by in-situ tensile test installed in SEM equipment to directly observe the fracturing behavior of the nanocomposites. TEM analysis obviously clarified a good coherence between Al matrix and CNTs, which was effective for control of pull-out phenomenon of CNTs from Al matrix. When the composite showed a high tensile strength, peeling behavior of some nanotubes were observed because the defects induced multi-walled CNTs would be fracturing initiation points in tensile.
