Paper Title:
Mechanical Properties and Microstructure of Al2O3/(W, Ti)C Nanocomposite
  Abstract

The Al2O3/(W, Ti)C nanocomposite was fabricated by hot pressing technique at 1650-1700°C under 30MPa for 10min. The fracture toughness remarkably increased by adding nano-scale Al2O3 (11vol %) particles into Al2O3 matrix. The flexural strength, fracture toughness and Vickers hardness are 840 MPa, 6.55 MPa•m1/ 2 and 20.1 GPa, respectively. The microstructure of the nanocomposite is homogenous skeleton structure. Nano particles could refine matrix grains and lead to the crack deflection as well as branching and bridging. The coexistence of nano-scale Al2O3, micro-scale Al2O3 and (W, Ti)C can reduce the sintering temperature and sintering time as well as the grain size, and improve the densification and mechanical properties of materials.
