First results on the investigation of the tensile load stress-elastic strain response of an AlSi-metal matrix composites are presented. Measurements were performed at room temperature and in-siru at elevated temperature using white high-energy synchrotron radiation. The experiments show the evolution of the lattice plane dependent microstrains in the aluminium matrix and the silicon particles.
