In the present investigation efforts were made to investigate the Al matrix composite reinforced with varying fraction (upto 40 vol%) of Al-Cu-Fe quasicrystals (QC) processed by mechanical milling and spark plasma sintering (SPS) for possible development as light metal composite alloys. The Al-QC nanocomposites have QC phase along with crystalline Al13Fe4 phase formed due to partial transformation of QC during milling. The milled Al-QC nanocomposite powders were sintered at temperature of 300℃ and 550℃ with a holding pressure of 500 MPa and 50 MPa respectively. The sintering temperature and pressure are found to influence phase transformation at the interfaces of Al-QC composites. Attempts are made to evaluate indentation behaviour and compressive strength of Al-QC composites. The detailed analysis will be made to understand the interface characteristics and processing effects on mechanical properties with an aim at exploring the possibility of developing as light metal composite materials.
