High Temperature Properties of Ti3SiC2-SiC Composites
Fully dense Ti3SiC2-64vol.%SiC(0.5m) composite materials are successfully fabricated by in situ synthesis under hot isostatic pressing. The high temperature flexure, tension and creep of Ti3SiC2-SiC composites were studied, and the results indicated that the composite had a high tensile strength under high temperature. Above 1000°C the composite were displayed a good high temperature plastic. The creep behavior is characterized by two regimes: an initial transient regime, where έ(dε/dt) decreases with t (time); a secondary creep regime in which έ is more or less constant with time.
