High Temperature Oxidation Behavior of ZrB2-SiC-Graphite Composite Heated by High Electric Current
High temperature oxidation testing was carried out on hot-pressed ZrB2-SiC-graphite composite by using high electric current heating. The composites oxidation behavior was investigated, the temperature of oxidized specimens was above 2000°C. The results found that the UHTC composite was ruptured at oxidized temperature 2055°C. The microstructure of surface and cross-section of posttest samples were investigated by scanning electron microscopy along with energy and X-ray diffraction. The failure mechanism of rupture was also discussed.
