Paper Title:
Thermodynamics of the Effect of Alloying Additions on In-Situ Reaction to Synthesize TiC/Mg Composites
  Abstract

The effect of the alloying element additions on in-situ chemical reaction to synthesize particulate reinforced TiC/Mg composites was evaluated from the viewpoint of thermodynamics. The influences of alloying elements on the changes of the activity coefficient and the excess free energy in molten magnesium were calculated. The results show that additions, such as Nd, La, Ca, Cu and Zr can promote TiC formation, at the same time hinder the brittle TiAl3 phase formation.
