In the frame of the common research project, the mechanical behaviour of recycled thin sheet Ti-Al based composites reinforced with scrap pure aluminium (AA1050) and boron, B reinforcement elements have been used with thin Ti-Al sheet recycled by hot forging method. The effects of chemical bonds during the production of these multifunctional sandwich composite structures were analyzed by 3-point bending tests to evaluated hyper elasticity behaviour. The same idea has been carried out this time on the Ti-Al based composites performed by sintered + forging through the powder metallurgy route by using different reinforcements such as TiB , TiC, and B C. Quasi static compression and low velocity impact (drop weight) tests have been performed on the sintered + forging specimens with a drop tower to observe the response of theses composites under the dynamic loading conditions. Interface and microstructure of these composites have been evaluated by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM).
