Be fiber-Ag alloy matrix composites were prepared from 0.0047 in diam wires. Although there is an etching effect on the wire surfaces due to the high processing temperatures, the bond between Be fiber surface and Ag matrix is a coherent one. Powders were prepared by meting and atomization. he Al alloy matrix ws used for preparing some extruded bars for determining the optimum heat treatment conditions. All these composites are being evaluated
