Paper Title:
Investment Casting of Titanium Matrix Composites
  Abstract

The aim of the present work is to investigate the possibility of in-situ synthesis and net-shape of the titanium matrix composites (TMCs) using a casting route. From the scanning electron microscopy (SEM), electron probe micro-analyzer (EPMA), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and thermodynamic calculations, the spherical TiC and needle like TiB reinforced hybrid TMCs could be obtained by the conventional casting route between titanium and B4C. No melts-mold reaction could be possible between (TiC+TiB) hybrid TMCs and the SKKU mold, since the mold is composed of interstitial and substitutional reaction products. Not only the sound in-situ synthesis but also the economic net-shape of TMCs could be possible by conventional casting route.
