Paper Title:
Microstructural and Mechanical Properties of Ti3SiC2 Composites
  Abstract

Ti3SiC2 has been a spectacular material, as it combines many of the best properties of metals and ceramics. This new material has potential applications for fabrication of jet engines and in bonding phases. Microstructure can further enhance the mechanical properties, such as strength, wear resistance and chemical stability. In the current research the different starting powder systems were used to synthesize Ti3SiC2 by hot pressing. The contents of Si were controlled appropriately to obtain Ti3SiC2/TiC ceramic composites. Preliminary results indicated that the fracture toughness and strength were improved. The influences of TiC contents on the microstructure and mechanical properties were investigated and the fracture mechanisms of Ti3SiC2/TiC ceramic composites are discussed qualitatively.
