In the frame of the research project that is going on, the mechanical properties of recycled gas atomized scrap aluminium (AA7075) based hybrid composites reinforced with nano SiC filler (whisker)+ Graphene Nano plateless (GNP) and fine carbon Fibers elements have been evaluated. Firstly, the mixture was homogenized by means of ball milling process during 4 hours. After hot compaction at 200°C compaction of the compositions the final specimens have been produced with the novel combined method called “SINTER+FORGING” at 650°C followed by relaxation treatment at 200°C during the 2 hours. This type of hybrid composite is used for aeronautical applications. Static and dynamic-Time dependent compression tests have been conducted. Interface and microstructure of these composites have also been evaluated by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM).
