Paper Title:
Contact Fracture Behaviors of Ti3SiC2 Synthesized by Hot Pressing Using TiCx and Si Powder Mixture
  Abstract

The contact fracture behaviors of fine-grained Ti3SiC2 and coarse-grained high purity Ti3SiC2 are examined by the Hertzian indentation and Vickers indentation technique. The Vickers hardness of bulk Ti3SiC2 is as low as 5.3~6.3 Gpa, and the Hertzian contact stress-strain curves for Ti3SiC2 deviate much from linearity, which resembles the fracture behavior of a ductile metal rather than a brittle ceramic. The contact damages by both Vickers indentation and Hertzian indentation reveal a fairly good plastic deformation nature of Ti3SiC2. Un-reacted TiCx in fine-grained Ti3SiC2 may impede the plastic deformation by slip along basal plan inside Ti3SiC2 grain, making Ti3SiC2 less plastic under loading.
